Oatmeal Wholewheat Bread

READY IN: 2hrs
YIELD: 2 breads




  • Mix together the oatmeal, flour and dry yeast.
  • Using 3 cups of water, add oil, salt and sugar and mix until dissolved.
  • Add flour to the water and knead in mixer (I have a KitchenAid) for 10 minutes.
  • It is very important that this dough be sticky in the beginning as the oatmeal must have the moisture to soften and expand. If the dough does not stick to the sides of the bowl, add little bits of water from the 4th cup until it does.
  • Leave dough in the mixer, cover with a cloth and let it rise until the dough makes a dome over the top of the bowl.
  • Switch on the mixer and knead for 5 minutes.
  • Grease breadpans and sprinkle insides with cracked wheat.
  • Divide dough into equal pieces and place in breadpans to rise.
  • Once dough has domed nicely in the breadpan, place in oven heated to 160C and bake for 60 minutes.
