Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Bread

"I got this wonderful bread recipe on the Internet about a year ago, and I have made it exclusively ever since. It makes the best toast ever! I make the dough in my bread machine, then take it out and shape it into a Pyrex loaf pan to rise again and bake in the oven. It turns out perfect every time."

    Very good bread. I made this by hand and accidentally added a full cup of oats. I also used 3 cups of King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour instead of half and half. I had to knead this for about 20 minutes (and it still could have stood a little longer but I was tired). It rose up nicely and baked into a beautiful, oatmeal-studded loaf. It is surprisingly moist. Thanks so much! **update - I meant to mention this last time - I don't have a bread machine, so I have to knead this by hand. It is VERY sticky. I probably add an additional cup of flour while I'm kneading - otherwise it gets stuck all over my hands and I have to scrape it off. Next time I will go ahead and add another 3/4 cup of flour before I start kneading and see how it goes.

    This made a delicious loaf! I made this without a machine and changed a couple of things: I used about a tablespoon of honey instead of the sugar, used granary flour for the whole wheat and omitted the powdered milk. I've got a second loaf rising now it was so good! Thanks.

    This bread recipe is excellent. As a nutritious alternative, I substituted 2 T. honey for the sugar and added 2 T. of wheat germ. I also baked it in my bread machine on the basic setting. Makes great toast! Thanks for the recipe.
