After reading all the reviews on this recipe I decided to add 2 tbsp of brown sugar to my bread.This made it just sweet enough.Even with all the spices it is not overpowering at all.It's like a cinnamon raisin bread without the raisins.This bread is quite dense and doesn't rise very high but it sure tastes good!I used half all purpose flour and half whole wheat.I did all this the traditional way without a bread maker.Here are the steps I took:
Put yeast,1 cup water & 2 tbsp of brown sugar into bowl,stir to dissolve.Let sit about 10 minutes until frothy.Add salt,molasses and oil;mix.Add oats,cinnamon,ginger,nutmeg,cloves and 2 cups flour and mix together.Add remaining 1 cup flour as needed until the dough is no longer sticky.Put dough into greased bowl and let rise for 1 hour.Punch down and form into 3 even balls.Put into greased bread pan and let rise 1/2- 1 hour.Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.Cool on rack.
