This is a very nice, basic oatmeal bread for your bread machine that I do make fairly often. The ingredients are simple, and great for those avoiding dairy products, since it's made with water. I think you'll like it. NOTE: I never tried it with wheat germ, but I'd bet it would be great! Baking time will vary based on your machine.
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons margarine
- 2⁄3 cup quick-cooking oats
- 2 1⁄3 cups bread flour
- 1 tablespoon wheat germ (optional)
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 package)
- PUt ingredients into the bread machine according to manufacturer's directions.
- Bake on basic white 1.
- 1.5 pound setting.
I made this using Porridge Oats which is a mix of old fashioned oats, oat bran, flax seed and a few other woody good for you things. I still added the wheat germ and uses Splenda for the honey. It came out great, it rose beautifully, has a nice chewy thin crust and a soft, fluffy, delicious inside. This one is a keeper for sure.
I actually made this bread yesterday...and couldn't wait to make another one this morning! This bread is totally wonderful with a super texture and a taste that is so delish!. The only change I made was I used 1-1/2 tsp bread machine yeast instead of the regular yeast, and I added 2 Tbsp of wheat germ, I just love that in bread! I am always on the lookout for good bread bachine recipes, and this is certainly one of them! Thanks for posting Charmed, this will become a regular at my house!....Kitten:)
A really great bread. Wonderful taste and texture. Baked it in oven but made it in bread machine. Placed the dough in a 9x5 pan,baked at 375 degrees for 35 minutes, covering it with foil after 15 minutes. I did use the wheat germ. I plan to use this recipe over and over again. Thank you Charmed!
