This is a very good recipe. One thing I did was melt the butter, add the milk, water and honey then heat until warm in the microwave and put this into your mixer bowl before you add the dry ingredients. Always put liquid in the bowl first then add the dry ingredients. Mixes much better that way. This is an old bakers tip (I used to own a bakery).
This bread is awesome! I have made it three times now and doubled the recipe each time to make two loaves. The bread turns out nice and fluffy. Yummy, Yummy goodness. I did make a couple of changes to this time. Instead of waiting the five minutes to add flour, I began adding it as soon as I realized the dough was still going to be too sticky. And I waited until I pulled the bread from the oven before spreading honey on the top. OH MY!! It smells so good. Husband loves it! All for about 20 cents per loaf! Will use this recipe again and again.
What a yummy bread! Easy to make and love the oat and honey combo. This bread has a hearty flavor but baked up light and soft. Great plain and toasted - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for My3Chefs 2013
This bread was delicious! The only change I made was that I used 1/2 c. whole wheat flour and 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour. Love the honey-oats combo! I will be making this again.
I made this recipe for the first time 2 days ago. The instructions are easy to follow and the finished bread is light and tasty. I used this bread to make a grilled cheese sandwich and it grilled very well, browned evenly and didn't fall apart. So I then put some slices in my toaster and was very pleased with the toast. My 3 year old grandchildren even liked it! The only step I did differently was to proof my yeast fort before I added it to the other ingredients. A very good bread for every day eating.
I made this bread yesterday, it was so easy and the taste is awesome. I will be making this on a regular basis...you won't be sorry...try it !
Turned out great even though I forgot to top with honey. Great for toast in the morning.
Made this over the weekend since I had lots of oats and wanted to hide some of it in the bread for the children and they loved it! I think the sticky honey and oat topping attracted them. It was delicious!
I made it with a graham flour because I like the added density. You can taste the honey in it which is great. This is a very easy bread, it does get hard pretty fast though (it might be the flour I used).
