Oatmeal Bread – for Breadmaker
Bread Maker Recipes
7-9 Ounces Water 9-11 ounces
1 tsp. Salt 1 ½ tsp.
1 ½ tsp. Honey 2 Tbs.
1 Tbs. Butter, Shortening or Lard * 1 ½ Tbs.
½ cup Quick Cook Oats 2/3 cup
2 ½ cups Bread or Unbleached Flour ** 3-¼ cup
1 ¾ tsp. Active Dry Yeast 2 tsp.
2 Tbs. Dry Milk Powder 2 Tbs.
Set Bread Maker for Regular or Large Classic Recipe setting. Works Well on timer delayed setting, but I find it is best to use hot water (pretty well hottest tap water) in this application.
Variation: May also substitute 1 cup Bread Flour for 1 cup Whole Wheat, and keep water temperature fairly hot.
** Unbleached White Flour was recommended in a good bread cookbook, and it works just as good as Bread Flour, and I’ve never had complaints! Not to mention it’s a lot cheaper.
*I never use margarine in my bread because the water content throws the recipes off (especially in the bread maker), but it also does not give as smooth or fluffy of a texture like the others.
