Maple Oatmeal Bread

"Maple syrup gives this soft, tender bread its delicate flavor and golden color," comments Kathy Marin of Methuen, Massachusetts. The pleasantly sweet slices taste terrific when toasted.

    Absolutely fantastic recipe! We loved the flavor (not too sweet) and the simplicity of the recipe. We will be making this again soon!

    Soft bread with a slightly sweet taste. A new family favorite. We made in a Breadman Ultimate bread maker. We used white whole wheat King Arthur flour.

    It made a dense loaf, as others have said but the flavour was really nice and made good toast!

    maybe i did something wrong but my bread came out short and extremely dense. It did however make a good french toast.

    My bread machine broke, so I was a bit disappointed in the results. How would you adjust the recipe without a bread machine?

    Excellent and easy! Very moist, with a subtle flavor. Perfect bread for breakfast!

    This bread was great. I am diabetic so I changed the maple syrup to sugar free breakfast syrup and saved about 4 grams of carbs.
