    Absolutely wonderful! We love the slight chewy texture from the oatmeal. During this global pandemic we have been baking our own breads. This is a five star winner!

    No way this recipe is a 5 star; it's for sure a 10 star. What a great sandwich bread and making on the ABM dough setting then taking out to shape and allow for a 2nd rise made for a soft crumb, with a hint of sweetness that makes for a wonderful sandwich bread. As always Donna with your bread recipes - it's the BEST.

    Wonderrful loaf. I used the dough cycle on my bread machine & formed the loaf to bake in a pan in the oven. It was half gone before it was even cool enough to cut properly. I may add some chopped toasted hazelnuts or pecans next time I make it. Thanks Donna!

    Thanks so much Donna for a great recipe. Made four mini loaves last week . . . that way I can fit a couple in my little freezer for later use!

    This was very good bread, I doubled the recipe and it worked fine. It was pretty cold in my house the day I made it so it took about 5 hrs. to rise but it was well worth the wait. Thanks for this recipe, Dan

    Wonderful! I finally got around to trying this out with those potato flakes that I was so hesitant about buying. I did substitute the milk with buttermilk and it yielded an exceptional and HUGE loaf. I used the Red Sea starter and it rose enormously in my large loaf pan in 3 hours. I needed about 8 more minutes on the baking time. I will definitely try CarrolJ's suggestion to bake it in a large stoneware bowl the next time I make it. This was indeed a WONDER loaf with lots of good taste, perfect soft texture, and a unique richness. Thanks, Donna!
