I got this from Cooking Light magazine and it is one of my husband's favorites. It goes together very quickly and requires no kneading. This is a great recipe for those who are new to bread baking. NOTE: Time includes rising time.

This had a nice flavor, but the texture was a bit off. It was a heavier than expected. I did knead it after mixing as not all of the ingredients mixed in well in the stiff batter. The onion flavor was a nice backgroud note. I think next time I will add a few caramelized onions to the top along with the sprinkle of oatmeal. Made for ZWT4.

This had a good flavor. Was pretty dense bread. For some reason the middle of my bread collapsed, but it didn't seem to affect the flavor. My husband liked it the most. Thanks for sharing
