- 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup oat bran
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon cornmeal
- In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, oat bran, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat water and honey to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough (dough will be sticky).
- Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Punch down dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a round loaf. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. With a sharp knife, make three diagonal slashes across top of loaf.
- Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet to wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (12 wedges).
Reviews for Rustic Oat Bran Bread
"A yummy, low-fat bread. I put it in loaf pans."
"We typically go for the light and crusty breads and I don't make too many from scratch but I wanted to try a heavier loaf to go with some chicken noodle soup tonight. This fit the bill. It was easy, used ingredients I had on hand, heavy, moist, not too large, had a hint of sweetness and everyone loved it. I will definately make it again. Thanks Nancy!"
