Oatmeal Breakfast Bread - Recipe

Good morning,

The simple pleasure of fresh bread for breakfast at home is one we enjoy often.  This bread is a favorite with berry jam or cream cheese and a cup of fresh coffee.

Oatmeal Breakfast Bread


1 egg

2 T vegetable oil

1 t salt

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 oz cream cheese

6 oz warm water

1/2 cup prepared hot oatmeal (at room temperature)

3-1/3 cups bread flour

1/3 cup dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, raisins, etc.)

Place all ingredients EXCEPT the dried fruit in large capacity bread machine in order given.

Set to dough and turn on. On most machines the first dough cycle is about 40 minutes. Keep an eye on it to be sure a ball forms about 1/3 way through the cycle. If necessary add a little water or flour to get the proper consistency. Five minutes before end of first dough cycle, add the dried fruit.

When the first dough cycle ends, remove dough and place in greased bowl. Either cover with damp cloth or place in warm place such as oven with light, but no heat turned on for first rise. This batch required about 1 hr, 45 minutes for the first rise.

When dough has doubled in size, remove and divide in four parts. Knead and slap around to remove all bubbles, then place in 4 greased half loaf pans.  Or, of course, you can use two full size loaf pans.

Place in oven with light but no heat on for second rise. When bread has doubled in size once again, remove from oven while preheating to 350 F.

Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes. If using 2 full size loaf pans, bake at 350 F for 45 minutes.

After baking, immediately turn out to racks to cool.
