Favorite Maple Oatmeal Bread Recipe

Favorite Maple Oatmeal Bread Recipe

This is one of my favorite recipes, especially since it features maple syrup. Vermont produces more maple syrup that any other state.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 40 min. YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup hot brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5-1/2 to 6 cups bread flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over cereal. Add the coffee, syrup, oil and salt. Let stand until mixture cools to 110°-115°, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oat mixture, eggs, sugar and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 3. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
