No-Knead Honey Oatmeal Bread
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 40 min. + cooling
Makes2 loaves (12 slices each)
- 2 cups water, divided
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each ) active dry yeast
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
- Melted butter, optional
- In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup water to boiling. Stir in the oats, butter, honey and salt. Let stand until mixture cools to 110°-115°, stirring occasionally. Heat remaining water to 110°-115°.
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the egg, oat mixture and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Do not knead. Place in a greased bowl; cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch down dough; divide evenly between 2 greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Smooth tops of loaves. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 35-40 minutes. Using a sharp knife, make a shallow slash down the center of each loaf.
- Bake at 375° until golden brown, 40-45 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. If desired, brush with melted butter.

I used 4.5 tsp of yeast (2.25 tsp. in each yeast pkg). and I think it is the correct amount.

Did it turn out OK with the 2 packets of yeast?

Can't help but wonder if the quantity of yeast is correct 2 package 1/2 ounce each, should it be 1/4 ounce each?! Will follow up to advise if bread turned out right (I used a total of 5 tsp of yeast)
