Favorite Maple Oatmeal Bread

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.
  • Makes
    2 loaves (16 slices each)

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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
