Most definitely a five star bread! And we love home made bread. I made a half batch as the two of us can only eat so much. Truly am very impressed with this and was simple too. I made as directed except used my dough hook. Made for Spring PAC 2010. Thank you Jane for a wonderful recipe that I will definitely be repeating! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put oats, honey, salt, and butter (if using) into a large bowl. Pour boiling water over and let sit till barely warm.
  2. Add yeast and flour, mixing well.
  3. Turn out onto floured counter and knead for 5 minutes. Add flour as necessary because this can be a sticky dough due to the honey and oats.
  4. Put dough back into bowl, cover with a cloth, and let rise for 1 hour.
  5. Turn dough out onto floured counter, punch down, divide into 2 loaves.
  6. Place loaves on a lightly greased cookie sheet (or 1/2 sheet pan), cover with cloth again and let rise for 45 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, brush loaves with milk and sprinkle with oats (if desired), and bake for 35 minutes.
