Enid's Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread (Breadmaker)

Karen Hatch


This recipe was adapted and tweaked by my partner Enid from a recipe in the book "Whole Grain Breads by Machine or Hand" by Beatrice Ojakangas. Very popular with friends. Dozens and dozens of loaves have been given to grateful friends, neighbors, and coworkers.

Important Tip: The Red Star yeast is the key to success with this bread.
