Reviews forSoft Oatmeal Bread
"I followed he recipe exactly. The only problem I had, was as soon as the bread machine started to bake, the bread completely sunk in the middle. It had risen beautifully and just sunk. I looked up reasons this might happen and found it could be too much liquid in the recipe? Anyone else have this experience? Next time I will bake it in the oven. The bottom half did come out nicely with a good cust and tastes really good. Will try just the dough cycle next time and bake in the oven."
"anyone have this recipe for 1 lb loaf? should I just cut in half?"
"This bread is amazing! It's light and tasty, will definitely make again as it was enjoyed by all!"
"I've been looking for a recipe that suits my family of five and this one's a hit! It's moist and flavorful without overpowering the younger tastebuds."
