      By itself I'd say it's okay, but with a little bit of butter and/or preserves it's wonderful! It has a crisp crust with a soft dense interior, and the pieces of steel cut oats give it a nice crunch. My only caution would be to watch the baking time. I checked it at 30 minutes and it was almost too dark. It's a nice change of pace bread.

      Thanks for sharing!! A great earthy bread. Nice with a sweet spread at tea or for dunking in a bowl of hearty soup with supper. I made two batches on St. Patrick's Day and added currents to one for a tweak...liked it both ways. Whisper has a winner and is right about the nutty goodness!
