Can it get any easier?! In the time it took me to heat the oven, I had the dough ready to go. Like a previous reviewer suggested, I just plopped the dough on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and baked for 40 minutes. Was great alone, with butter, and with jelly. The ratio of easy to delicious is off the charts in this one! You gotta try it!
What a GREAT TASTING BREAD! I made it for breakki today and it was perfect in every way: Easy and quick to put together with a lovely flavour. The oats make for a more rustic bread, which strongly reminded me of porridge (a dish I adore!). The texture was airy on the inside with a crunchy bottom and top. YUM! The only change Id make next time Im baking this, would be to leave out the sugar as it makes for a more cake than bread like bread. Since I didnt have a right sized pan, I simply dropped the dough onto a paper-lined baking sheet and put it into the oven like that. It worked out nicely. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this with us, Chef Buggsy Mate! Made and reviewed for my chosen chef in Veg'n'Swap #13 August 09.
This recipe made it into book#234156! Oh my gosh, this is excellent bread!! It's healthy, too!! I'm so excited about this recipe. It's a must try. The bread had a lovely consistency, moist and dense on the inside and crusty on the outside. The flavor is just fantastic. I think it's best served warm (either straight from the oven or sliced and reheated in the microwave for 10 seconds) with a little bit of butter or honey. My whole family just loves this bread. It's already become a family favorite. Easy, too!

I am blessed with a wonderful dh and four fantastic, crazy children. I am a stay at home mom who works from son up till son down. My favorite cookbook is not one that I cook with very often, it actually sits on top of my pantry propped up in an old basket. The cookbook was given to my grandmother just prior to her marriage to my grandfather and it has the family prayer and some recipes that my great-grandmother penned in her own hand inside. It is called All About Home Baking. <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=daringdingos.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/daringdingos.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/GrassTree.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Erica.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/BottleBrush.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Darwinia.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/babygrey-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Correa.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picNW72Oj-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picCdyPjI-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/pic9ysNPn-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picbtGrUW-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/pictSF7ey-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group10peppers.jpg> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap2/group04cherry.jpg> <img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n191/bb_babe626/Recipes/makemyrecipebannnner.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Holiday-plaid_HPI.gif">
