This was originally Maple Oatmeal Bread tweeked with some hot brewed coffee. I got the idea from TOH. It turns a pretty golden brown.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine the coffee, water, syrup, vegetable oil, oats, sugar and salt. Let sit for a couple of minutes until it cools slightly.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oat mixture, eggs and 2 cups of flour; mix well.
  3. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  4. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic about 6-8 minutes.
  5. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  6. Punch dough down. Trun onto a lightly floured surface, divide into two.
  7. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9 X 5 X 3" loaf pans.
  8. Cover and let rise until doubled.
  9. Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until golden.
  10. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

Great flavor, we both loved it. the dough was runny (like a batter) so we needed to add significantly more flour to get the texture right.

This bread is wonderful! I started with 5 cups of flour (1/2 whole wheat & 1/2 bread flour) & used all the liquid stated. I did use 1 cup of potato water I saved from the previous night. I mixed this in my trusty ABM. It started off looking like a porridge so I added an additional cup of oats, 1/2 cup of ground flax seed & 1heaping tablespoon of vital wheat gluten. Halfway through the whole wheat cycle (longer beating by ABM) I added 1/2 cup of chopped pecan pieces. This made 2 loaves that rose beautifully in the bread pans after the ABM had her way with the dough. Wonderful texture - perfect for sandwiches & toast. I coated the bread pans with whole flax which complemented the soft brown colour of the bread well. Thank you Tish, I will be using this recipe again!
