Yep. Outstanding. The first time it came out a little gooey in the middle, so since then I have been adding about 3/4 cup more flour and baking at 350 for a hour. Perfect every time. Incredible taste and texture, and so easy to make. It's in the once-a-week rotation.
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly... my hubby and I couldn't wait so after the timer dinged we took off the top of the bread and ate it! Then we put it back in the oven, as the center was not quite set. I think next time I will cook it a bit longer, on a lower temperature. I will definitely make it again. Thank you so much for the recipe :)
This is a very easy recipe and a pretty good bread! I had to add some extra flour and couldn't find my plain oatmeal and so used 3 packets of Quaker Simple Harvest Apple Cinnamon. As it turns out, this was a great sub because it added some very nice flavor! Thank you for the recipe!
