Easy Oat Bread

Original Article

English: Bread from IndiaImage via Wikipedia

  • 1 1/4 cup warm water (105-115F)
  • 2 teaspoon active dry yeast (one packet)
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoon butter, melted, for brushing

    In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast onto the warm water and stir until the yeast dissolves. Stir in the honey and set aside for a few minutes, until the yeast blooms and swells a bit, 5-10 minutes.
    In the meantime, mix the flours, oats, and salt in a large bowl. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir very well.

    Brush a 8-cup loaf pan generously with some of the melted butter. Turn the dough into the tin, cover with a clean, slightly damp cloth, and set in a warm place for 30 minutes, to rise.

    Preheat the oven to 350F. When ready, bake the bread for 35-40 minutes, until golden and pulling away from the sides of the pan. You can finish things up by leaving the bread under the broiler for just a heartbeat -to give the top a bit deeper color. Remove from oven, and turn the bread out of the pan quickly. Let it cool on a rack so it doesn’t steam in the pan. Brush on remaining melted butter on top of loaf. Serve warm, slathered with butter and your favorite jam.

    There is no kneading involved with this bread and it only rises for 30 minutes. Super quick and easy. It is moist with a crispy crust and very yummy. It’s a keeper.

  1. mmmm, i make a stir bread regularly too but it has two 30 min rises and then a 30 minute bake. I wonder what difference the second rise does :) might ahve to try this one out.

  2. Looks good and seems to be at least semi-healthy. I think adding the honey will give it great flavor. My wife is using the bread machine now but I wonder if baking in the oven would taste better.

  3. I like the nutty taste of oats, so will be trying this recipe. Thanks.
