Directions

  1. Combine milk, honey, and oil; set aside to cool; meanwhile, sprinkle yeast and sugar over warm water; let stand about 5 minutes until foamy.
  2. Stir together cooled milk mixture, proofed yeast mixture, egg, salt, oat bran, oatmeal, and wheat flour; gradually stir (in KitchenAid stand mixer on low speed #1) until a soft dough comes together to form a smooth ball; add additional bread flour a tablespoon or two at a time if necessary.
  3. Knead (in KitchenAid stand mixer on medium speed #2) about 10 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic.
  4. Place dough into oiled bowl; cover bowl and place in a warm place; allow dough to rise about an hour until doubled.
  5. Punch down dough; let rise again 30-45 minutes until once-again doubled; you may, if desired, skip this second rise and simply let the dough rest 10 minutes before shaping it into a loaf.
  6. Shape dough into a loaf; place in a greased loaf pan; cover and let rise again about 30 minutes.
  7. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes, or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
  8. NOTE: The honey in this recipe may be replaced with your choice of molasses, corn syrup, brown sugar, or white sugar.
