Oats and Honey Bread - Recipe

Good morning,

Here is another classic bread. I like this bread to make bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches.

This particular day, though, I had a request from my daughter for dinner rolls.  I split the batch to make both dinner rolls and loaves so everyone was happy.  :)



Oats and Honey Bread


1 egg

2 T vegetable oil

2 t salt

3 T honey

2 T brown sugar

1 oz cream cheese

1 cup water

1 cup oats

3 1/2 cups bread (or all purpose, but not self rising) flour

2 rounded t dry yeast

Place all ingredients in large capacity bread machine in order given. Set on dough cycle and turn on.

The first dough cycle on most machines is about 40 minutes. Watch the action to be sure a dough ball forms at least 1/3 way through the cycle. Add a little flour or water if necessary to get the correct consistency.

When first dough cycle finished, remove from machine and place in a greased bowl for first rise. Place the bowl in a warm place such as the oven with the light, but no heat turned on. If you place it out on the counter in a warm place, cover with a damp cloth. This batch required about 1 1/4 hours for the first rise. Keep in mind that the temperature in your kitchen and the mood of the yeast can change the time required for the dough to rise.

If you are using crockery or glass pans/bowls for baking, set the empty bread pans in a warm place, too. I use my second oven with the light turned on.

If preheating pans, remove from oven.

Spray pans with vegetable oil.

After the first rise, knead the dough gently to remove bubbles.

Divide for number of baking dishes you are using, shape to fit the pans, and place in bread pans. Place in warm place again for second rise.

When it is finished rising the second time, bake at 350 F for 40 mins if using pans similar to those in the images. If using 2 standard loaf pans, bake at 350 F for 45 mins.

Remove from oven, turn out to cooling racks immediately.
