My husband loves to make this bread. With its mild oat taste and soft texture, it's sure to be a hit with the whole family. Slices also are delicious toasted up for breakfast. —Nancy Montgomery, Plainwell, Michigan

"This bread is so soft and delicious. As the dough was mixing, it looked a lot moister than my normal bread machine recipes. I think the oatmeal soaks up some of the moisture, so I didn't add a lot of extra flour while mixing."
