I have two Honey Oatmeal breads that I make and alternate them. Don't ask why because I have no reason. Each time I switch my hubby says, "Oh this is good". So I like them equally as well. This one has a little less honey in it but still has that nice sweet taste. I think you would like either one. You may add raisins to this too at the proper time---1 cup for the large loaf and 3/4 cup for the medium loaf.
- 1 3⁄4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 1⁄3 cups oats (quick or regular)
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons dry buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄4 cups bread flour
- 1 cup oats (quick or regular)
- 2 tablespoons dry buttermilk
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons yeast
- Add ingredients according to the manufacturers instructions.
- When it begins to knead, watch and see that is the proper consistency; if it need more water, add a tad of it slowly and if it needs more flour, do the same slowly till you get what you want.
- Cool on rack.
Yum is right!! I didn't have enough oatmeal, so added some 7 grain cereal. I've made cereal breads before, honey was the missing ingredient that changed good to great. Thanks!!!
Ohhh yum. My bread machine was already on the counter and I was out of bread, so I went with this recipe instead of running to the store. I made the med. loaf which I figured was a 1.5lb and that seemed to be accurate, it was nicely cooked all the way through. The med. size doesn't have a measurement for honey so I guessed at 2 tbsp. I realized halfway through making it that I didn't even notice dry buttermilk in the ingredient list (and have never bought such a thing!) so I added a splash of milk. Then I realized that I *might* have forgotten the oil (pregnancy brain) so I threw that in while it was mixing. I thought this bread was a goner for sure (by this point it looked like oatmeal soup) but I added a good portion of extra flour through the different knead stages and it came together perfectly. I'm enjoying my fresh bread turned into a tuna sandwich as I type! For some reason I expected this bread to be more dense and oatmeal-y, but the oats cook right into the bread and it is light and fluffy with just a little hint of sweetness. Really lovely flavour and texture, even after baking in the machine as opposed to the oven. I'm pleased that in spite of my mess-ups it came together beautifully.
