I just got a bread machine and this was the second recipe I've tried. My daughter specially requested Oatmeal bread, so I tried this recipe and it turned out beautifully. I used old-fashioned oats and used the rapid cycle. This made a nice tall tasty loaf. Thanks for posting this!
Superb bread! I followed Sage's success hints, and it turned out spectacularly.
This turned out so Good. I set my Machine on the sweet setting and it turned out to be airy and golden brown. Will make this wonderful bread again. Thanks for sharing.
I'm only rating this 5 stars because there is no way to give it 6! This is a wonderful recipe. I also followed Sage's advice on adding the oatmeal after the 1st Knead cycle, although I didn't catch it in time to add more on the top before it baked. I did melt the butter before adding it to the bread machine. Served it warm and it was delicious. Thank you Sage for sharing this recipe.
Top shelf bread all the way! I intended on using 1/2 whole wheat flour, but only had 1 cup of it, so used that plus 2 cups regular bread flour. I also wasn't going to be around to add the oatmeal later, so I put that on top of the flour and it baked up perfectly! No need for that extra step. Olive oil subbed nicely for the butter too. Soft insides with a crunchy crust...yum! Thanks Sage!
I also substituted the butter with olive oil and ommited the dry milk powder, with great success. And I used 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour. Brushed with water and dusted with oats before baking, this was a true artisan loaf of bread. My new go-to oat bread recipe.
This bread was very good. It indeed has a very crunchy crust with a tender inside, which is just what I like. I didn't have the powdered milk, so I subbed the same amount of whey protein powder and cut down the honey to half to make it less sweet. I used half whole wheat and half white bread flour in the bread machine. I used a full packet of rapid rise yeast and the whole wheat cycle. I will make this one again.
This is a very good recipe! I put in 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups white bread flour and it turned out very well. It is a good sandwich texture and also will be good for toast. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
Great bread, so light and fluffy. Did have to add more flour as it was very sticky. Added half of the oatmeal while kneading and half at the very end. Did it with my KA and baked for 30 min.
Loved this bread. Buttery flavor, soft and tender texture. Perfect for sandwiches, toast, or side w/ soup. I added the oatmeal with all the other ingredients so didn't get crunch, but that would be good, too. Thanks for sharing
