  • Makes
    1 loaf (12 wedges)


  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add eggs, oat mixture and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 55 minutes.
  • Punch dough down. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. round baking dish. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before removing from baking dish to a wire rack to cool. Cut into wedges.

    Renita, I have the original recipe from 2005. You combine the butter and honey in boiling water, then cool to 110-115. Then add the eggs, oats, salt and butter mixture and 2 cups of flour to the yeast mixture - follow steps as listed here. Hope this helps!

    I love this bread and enjoy making it - however, the original recipe did not call for pouring the boiling water over the oats - for some reason this tends to make the bread heavier - does anyone have the original recipe - I had much better luck w/that - thanks

    Very good batter bread recipe. I baked it in my cast iron Dutch oven and served it with vegetable soup.

    Easy to make into 2 loaves of bread. I used a bread machine to make the dough and added about 4 1/2-5 cups of flour total to get the dough to the right consistency. Great for sandwich bread as it slices nicely and is soft.

    This is my family's favorite bread recipe. I've made it in loaf pans but think it turns out better in the round baking dish.

    I'm just wondering if this can be made in loaf pans?
