Reading comments about bread machines made me think of one of my favorite "go to" recipes. The subtle sweetness of this bread comes from honey and molasses; a dynamite duo! Feel free to substitute 1 cup wheat flour for bread flour. For more than subtle sweetness, add more honey or molasses. This bread is great for sandwiches, for toast, or just pop a slice in micro for 10 seconds then slather w/ butter for that "just out the oven" goodness! For a pretty loaf presentation I like to bathe the top w/ melted butter or some honey while still hot and sprinkle liberally w/ additional oatmeal.
