Secret Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup steel cut oats
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups dried apples, chopped in 1/2-inch pieces (one package)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups sourdough starter (active and bubbly, consistency of thick batter)
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons powdered milk
  • 1 (3/4 ounce) packet hot spiced cider mix (single serving size)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup rolled wheat flakes
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour (may need a bit more)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (I use white whole wheat)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Bring the 3/4 cup of water to boil in a saucepan.
  2. Stir in the oats, turn heat to low and cover pan.
  3. Cook for 8 minutes, then cool to lukewarm.
  4. Place dried apples into a bowl or glass measuring cup and pour 1/3 cup water over them.
  5. Cover the container with a plate or plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute.
  6. Set aside, with cover intact, and let cool.
  7. In a large mixing bowl, combine starter, water, milk powder, cider mix, sugar and butter.
  8. Stir in the cooled oats and apples.
  9. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it is a shaggy mass.
  10. Turn out onto a lightly oiled surface and fold the dough over onto itself repeatedly until it is supple and elastic.
  11. This dough should be quite soft and tacky, so don't add a lot of extra flour.
  12. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes, then fold it like a letter, turn 90 degrees and fold again.
  13. Wait another 30 minutes and repeat the foldings.
  14. Cover dough and let it rise until it is not quite doubled.
  15. Divide the dough into two portions and shape into loaves.
  16. Place in two loaf pans, about 4" x 8" that have been greased.
  17. Cover and proof until dough crests about 1" above rim of pans.
  18. Bake loaves at 375°F for about 45 minutes, rotating loaves halfway through the bake time for even browning.
  19. Turn bread out of pans onto a cooling rack immediately upon removing from oven.
  20. Cool at least 1 hour before slicing.
  21. Serve toasted or cold--I like to make a cream cheese spread by mixing some more of the spiced cider mix (to taste) into cream cheese.
