I was looking for bread recipes and my Aunt gave me this one that has become my absolute favorite. I don't know where she got it, but when I make it everyone devours it. Having grown up in New Hampshire, I added the option to use real maple syrup and use it when I can get it. Otherwise, I prefer to use honey.

Ingredients

  • 6 c
    bread flour
  • 1 c
    old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 c
    boiling water
  • 2 Tbsp
    butter
  • 2 1/2 tsp

How to Make Honey Oatmeal Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak oats in bowl with 2 cups boiling water and let set for 30 minutes.
  2. Add yeast to 1/3 cup lukewarm water and let stand 5 mins. until softened.
  3. While waiting for yeast to soften, add salt, honey and butter to the oats. Stir until butter has melted. Add yeast mixture and mix again.
  4. Add flour 2 cups at a time kneading in the last 2 until dough is elastic. You may not use all 6 cups depending on the weather. (Seriously - if the humidity is low, you will use less flour, if it's high you may use a little more flour).
  5. Cover with a towel, let rise until double. Punch down dough, divide into two loaves, and place into greased loaf pans. Let rise again until double.
  6. Bake in 325 degree oven 50-60 mins. Placing the loaves in the bottom of your oven will help keep the top from browning too quickly. When loaves are done, they will sound hollow when you tap on them.
