I like the soft and moist crumb and the sharp bite of the crust, helped by rolling the dough in Hafergrütze before putting it into my wooden frame. Hafergrütze consists of coarsly cut hulless oats. Before the opening of “Netto” markets in my vicinity, AFAIK it was available only in Northern Germany. I’ve used it in this bread and was only able to get it through Ulrike from Küchenlatein.
Quite delicious. Almost as good as pancakes. And this concludes the small series of rectangular breads.
