I love this recipe. The oats give it a really good taste, and I use wheat flour for some wheat taste. If you don't enjoy wheat flour, you can use all white flour and it is still delicious. I use my bread maker to make the dough, then form it into a loaf. You don't have to use a bread machine, I've done it by hand; the machine just makes it quicker with kids in the kitchen under my feet. Preparation time includes the bread machine dough cycle, mine is about one hour.
- Put ingredient in bread maker in the order listed above. Set to dough cycle. Check to see if a good ball is forming; if needed add a teaspoon of water or flour at a time to get a good dough ball.
- At the end of the dough cycle, form a loaf and put in lightly sprayed bread pan. Cover, and let raise for about 45 minutes to an hour.
- Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, depending on your oven.
- After removing from oven, lightly spread melted butter on the top crust with pastry brush (optional; gives it a nice look and flavor).
