updated on 16Dec2020
Place into the bread mixing pan of the Zorijushi.
- 1 1/2 cups of water
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¼ cup of olive oil
- ¼ cup honey
Combine in a separate mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (if you want a lighter loaf, replace with 1/2 of white flour)
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 3 tablespoons powdered milk
- 5 tablespoons active gluten (1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon)
Dump dry mixture into mixing pan of your bread machine
Indent top of flour pile and place
- 1.5 to 2 teaspoons yeast
On machine, select BASIC course with a MEDIUM crust.
We have two machines. One is older and runs hotter than the second one. This happened a year or so in the manufacturing. You may need to experiment with the settings to get the browning that you like. We prefer the lighter browning.
Also, tweaking the yeast and the water content if your loaves raise or don’t raise too much is a go to first. Remember, Sterling has over 40 experiments on this recipe.
For a special treat, add 1 cup cran-raisins
into the dry ingredients mixture and give it a good stir to get an even distribution.
Sterling feels this is better than waiting for the machine to give it’s signal to add materials, where they still stay clumped up through the dough.
