YUM!!!! just a hint of sweetness, a slightly chewy texture but not heavy. This is really a great loaf of bread. I made my homemade butter to go with it.

Serves:

1 large loaf

Prep:

2 Hr

Cook:

35 Min

Ingredients

1 c
old fashion oats
1 c
boiling water
3 tsp
yeast
1/3 c
warm water ( 110-115 degrees)
3/4 c
real maple syrup
2 tsp
canola oil
1 1/2 tsp
salt
3 1/2 c
sifted all purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place oats in a blender or food processor, cover and process oats for about 10 seconds or until finely chopped. Transfer to a small bowl, add boiling water and let stand until mixture cools to 110-115 degrees, I stick my candy thermometer into it.
2
while that is cooling. In a large bowl dissolve yeast in the 1/3 cup of warm water, add syrup, oil, salt, oat mixture and 2 cups of the flour beat until smooth stirring in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. I use the entire amount called for.
3
Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic about 6 minutes.
Place into a greased bowl turning once to grease top. cover and let rise until doubled about 1 hour
4
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a loaf. place into a 9 inch bread pan, cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake in a preheated oven 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until top is golden. remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
5
If you prefer you can place in a greased 9 inch round baking dish, brush the top with egg white and sprinkle 2 Tablespoons of oats over the top. bake as you would a regular loaf
