As you have probably guessed, I LOVE BREAD!!! I love to make all different kinds, experiment with different techniques. When a loaf doesn't turn out quite nice, I make french toast out of it so it is a win-win situation. This recipe is a great sandwich bread. Nice high rise, light and fluffy texture. All around great bread. It isn't soaked but I am going to experiment with it and see if I can turn it into a soaked recipe.
In the meantime, enjoy this tasty lil' gem!
HONEY OATMEAL BREAD
4 1/2 Tsp. Active Dry Yeast
1/2 C. Honey (Raw is best)
4 Tbsp. Butter
2 1/4 C. Water
1 Tbsp. Real Sea Salt
2 C. All Purpose Flour (I had Bread Flour so that is what I used)
4-5 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Flour (I used Hard White Whole Wheat)
1 C. Quick Cooking Oats
In a saucepan, combine the butter and honey. Stir over medium high heat until butter is melted. Add water and stir. Take off heat and check to make sure that it is very warm but not too hot to touch (if it is, just let it set for a few seconds to cool down a little). Add yeast and let sit until it is nice and foamy ( about 10 minutes).
