Oatmeal-Flaxseed Bread - recipe

Originally posted on my other blog The Carmelite's Habit for Holy Week. Great bread for fasting on bread and water. I'm working on a variation where the grain and flaxseed are pre-soaked in buttermilk.

Oatmeal-Flaxseed Bread
1 1/2 lb loaf

1 cup plus 2 tbs water
3 tbs corn oil
3 tbs sugar
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup oat bran
2 tbs whole flaxseed
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tsp bread machine yeast

Place all ingredients in bread machine in order listed. I like it with a medium crust.

Notes: A mild-flavored olive oil works nicely in this recipe too. If you think you might want to keep the loaf for a day or two, reduce the sugar to 2 tbs and add a heaping tbs of malt syrup. It will help to naturally preserve it and will really give it a nice rich flavor without adding any additional sweetness.
