MY REVIEW

Love this loaf! It is slightly sweet and flavorful. I have made it several times. Makes a great simple sandwich with a slice of room-temp artisan sharp cheddar (hey, I'm in WI!). Do be ready to be patient - the initial step, adding hot water to oatmeal, needs a fair bit of cooling time before proceeding
