Maple Oat Bread

"This bread has a subtle but very delicious flavor. It's very moist and makes a perfect breakfast with coffee or tea. I've made it with the dried cranberries, and I think it would have a great texture with the pecans! It's from The First Year by Heather Van Vorous."

  1. My family went crazy over this bread! I used skim milk I had reconstituted from dry and a tad more maple syrup because I was trying to use it up. I left out the craisins and nuts because I had none. Made it at night for breakfast in the morning and by the time I got up most of it was gone!
  2. I don't know what I did wrong, but my liquid to dry ingredients was totally off. I'm pretty sure I followed the directions exactly, but my batter was soupy. It baked up okay and was definitely edible, but overall, it didn't have that normal crumbly, quick-bread quality. It was more of a dense, very moist type bread. I added Cinnamon Chips which was good because otherwise, it wouldn't have had much flavor. Maybe I'll try it again and see if I can figure out what went wrong.
  3. This quick bread is wonderful! I used full-fat milk and 2 whole eggs, I used walnuts and dried cranberries, and I baked these in three mini loaf pans because I am giving two of them to my DS, and keeping on for me to have with my morning coffee. Thanks Kree, great recipe...Kitten:)


I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
