I love walnuts, and I try to add it to most of my bread machine breads. This one is excellent with a soup or as a sandwich bread.
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- 3 1⁄4 cups bread flour
- 1⁄2 cup quick oats
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup walnuts
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1 1⁄4 cups very warm water (not hot)
- Place ingredients in machine according to your manufacturer's directions.
This bread was delicious. It was so fluffy and light, with a crispy crust. My only complaint would be that the recipe was a bit off. Right off the bat I knew that 1 tbsp of salt would be too much. So I added 1 tsp. and it was perfect. I also added 2 1/2 tsp of yeast instead of 1 1/2. I was worried that me changing the recipe a bit would mess it up, but the bread came out PERFECT. Also, the recipe doesnt specify whether to chop the walnuts, or use them whole. I chopped them. And lastly, after baking the bread and tasting it, it was a bit sweet, so I would cut the sugar down a few tbsps. I will definately make this bread again soon. I love it. If you havent made an oatmeal bread, you are really missing out.
I love this recipe. Thank you kitchenmaniac. I have had trouble with my bread mahine and some recipes not rising. I had no problem with this one and it is the tastiest.
I also changed the salt amount to 1 tsp. This bread is very good for toast. I loved it.
