Wholemeal Flaxseed Custard Bread

With reference to my previous attempt on the Custard Bread, I make a variation to come up with a Wholemeal Flaxseed Custard Bread. So why did I added flaxseed to my Wholemeal bread? Cos I read about flaxseed is high in fiber, and many nutrition values so I tot, why not?

I saw retail selling flaxseed by pieces, but I feel that it is too for my boy. Kinda worried about him choking etc. End up I chanced upon this powder form of flaxseed by Origins brand and I grab 1. 

The end result of my modifications turns out well. Bread is still soft, not too dry and it is not too overwhelming in my feel. But I feel that it need to go with a spread so that you don't feel the flaxseed taste that much? Or maybe just myself being paranoid cos I know I 'added' special ingredients. Hahah.. Anyway, do try this healthy bread loaf at home. 

And I make a extra bread into Garlic Cheese roll. Yum yum...
