Oat bran adds fibre to this delicious bread. You may leave out the gluten but the bread will be denser. Makes a 2 lb. loaf. Recipe from Donna German.
- 1 1⁄3 cups water
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons butter or 2 1⁄2 tablespoons margarine
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2⁄3 cup oat bran
- 2⁄3 cup oats
- 3 cups bread flour
- 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten (optional)
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- Add ingredients to bread machine pan in order given, or according to your machine instructions.
- Set on whole wheat cycle.
I love this one, and have made it many times. My bread machine cycle has a one-hour raise, and that is too long for this bread, as it will overflow in that time. It raises to double quickly. I then form it into one loaf plus two tiny bread pans of 4 min-buns each. Don't let it raise too long before baking, as it has significant oven spring. 350 degrees for about 35 minutes works for me.
This is a really good recipe and I would make this one again.
I have made this several times. It has a wonderful flavor and is great toasted the next day.
