After reading a book in which the heroine served butterscotch oatmeal bread, I went looking for this recipe. It's different enough that it's not duplicated at church and family functions. I especially like to use it for Easter breakfast.
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄3 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 1⁄3 cups buttermilk
- 1 1⁄3 cups flour
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup butterscotch chips
- in a large bowl, combine the oats, buttermilk, and brown sugar; set aside. In a separate bowl,combine butter and eggs. Add to the oats and mix well. In a large bowl, combine flour,baking powder,salt,and baking soda. Stir all ingredients together until combined. Add butterscoth chips and stir to incorporate. Pour batter into well-greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, until golden.
I made these to take to my mom and her assisted living residents tonight, and they were a definate hit. They were moist and delicious. I will be making these again very soon. I used Sugar Twin Brown Sugar, and they were still great....I will probably double the recipe next time, so I can have some leftovers.
