Oatmeal Bread (Bread Machine/Bread Maker)
I love this recipe. The oats give it a really good taste, and I use wheat flour for some wheat taste. If you don't enjoy wheat flour, you can use all white flour and it is still delicious. I use my bread maker to make the dough, then form it into a loaf. You don't have to use a bread machine, I've done it by hand; the machine just makes it quicker with kids in the kitchen under my feet. Preparation time includes the bread machine dough cycle, mine is about one hour.
- Ready In:
- 2hrs 30mins
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 c milk with 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice)
- 1⁄8 cup oil
- 1⁄4 cup honey
- 1⁄2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 1⁄2 cups white flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups wheat flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- Put ingredient in bread maker in the order listed above. Set to dough cycle. Check to see if a good ball is forming; if needed add a teaspoon of water or flour at a time to get a good dough ball.
- At the end of the dough cycle, form a loaf and put in lightly sprayed bread pan. Cover, and let raise for about 45 minutes to an hour.
- Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, depending on your oven.
- After removing from oven, lightly spread melted butter on the top crust with pastry brush (optional; gives it a nice look and flavor).
MY PRIVATE NOTES

I love this bread! I have tried lots of bread machine recipes recently and this so far is my favorite! I do not like sweet sandwich bread so I decreased the honey to 1 T and left the salt as called for in the recipe. Next time I will add some sunflower seeds for some crunch. It was just to my liking for sandwiches, a hint of salt and not too sweet. I might make it with all the honey if I was going to use it for french toast or something, though. Excellent bread. Oh yeah, I didn't bake it in the oven--I don't have time for that last step, so I just baked it in the bread machine and the crust turned out crispy. Yum!
