Oatmeal Loaf Recipe

I was raised on homemade bread, and this recipe couldn't be easier or more satisfying. Sometimes I'll add raisins and cinnamon for a different taste.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine boiling water and oats; let stand until warm (110°-115°). In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; add to oat mixture. Add honey, butter, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. 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.
  3. Punch the dough down. Shape into a loaf; place in a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with oats. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 50-55 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf.

MY REVIEW

Excellent homemade bread, moist and soft. I also used my bread machine making cinnamon raisins version. Added more water to the dough. Make 1 9-in x 5-in loaf. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. It turned out great too. I'll make this more often.

Just made this and it was great! I only had 2 1/2 cups flour TOTAL in the dough. I thought that was odd but any more it would have been way too stiff. It might have been the weather too. Really wet here today. And I baked it for 45 min. But 50 would have been perfect. I will be making this again and letting my clients know about this awesome loaf!

I used leftover oatmeal from breakfast and added just a little more liquid. It turned out excellent.
