Oatmeal Onion Batter Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by MamaJ

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.
