Oatmeal Bread

I have been baking (read: nesting) a lot lately, and wanted to try a new bread. Oatmeal is always a good option-healthy, and yummy! I have a recipe for honey oat bread that I LOVE, but I wanted something that wasn't quite as sweet. This was a hit!

The only change I will make for next time is the rise time--it may just have been the temp in my kitchen, but for the second rise it definitely did NOT need to rise for a full hour. Maybe 1/2 hour to 45 minutes? Definitely keep an eye on it! *edit: Definitely only needs 30 minute rise! It was perfect at that point! And definitely sunk less than when I've made this in the past. I am going to try honey vs. brown sugar, next time!

Oatmeal Bread


    • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
    • 1 cup boiling water
    • 1/2 cup warm water
    • 2 1/4 teaspoon active yeast
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoons salt
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1. In a small bowl, pour boiling water over the oats. Set aside until it comes to room temperature.
    2. In a liquid measuring cup mix together the warm water and yeast. Let sit for a few minutes until foamy.
    3. In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, and salt. Add the cool oats, yeast mixture, and butter. Mix until everything is well combined, and a dough starts to form.
    4. Knead with bread hook in mixer for 5-6 minutes, until smooth. Add additional flour as needed. 
    5. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until double in size, about an hour.
    6. Grease a 9"x5" loaf pan. Set aside.
    7. Punch dough down, then turn onto a lightly floured surface surface. Roll into a 9”x12” rectangle, then place seam side down into prepared pan. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
    8. Preheat oven to 375°. Once the dough has risen, place in preheated oven. Decrease the temperature to 350°, and bake for 30-40 minutes. 
    9. Remove from pan, and cool on a wire rack.
    1 loaf (16 slices)
    3 hours
