Homemade Goodness "Oatmeal Bread" (bread machine)
Oatmeal Bread for the bread machine
1 1/4 cups water
3 tbsp honey (I used agave)
2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup quick-cook oats (I used regular organic kind & worked fine)
1 3/4 tsp salt
3 3/4 cups bread flour (I used unbleached regular flour)
2 tbsp bran (I used wheat germ, only thing I had)
2 tbsp dry milk
2 tsp active dry yeast
Put wet ingredients in first then the dry ingredients. Use your finger to form a well in the flour and put your yeast in this well.
Follow your instructions on your bread machine, each one is different. Mine says to select basic selection then pick crust color. Start.
This takes about 3 hours to make but well worth the wait. Its a much heavier bread and is super filling. I love the sweetness of this bread. This is my favorite bread now. Below is the same machine I own. Super easy to use and clean. You can get this on Amazon but I found mine for only $50 at my local BI Mart. Cheapest I found around here in Oregon. My mother and sister own this as well. I have read reviews on this machine and almost all of them are great reviews. One review stated that they used this machine for 12 years everyday and its still up and running.
