Honey and Molasses Oatmeal Bread (Bread Machine!)

Cindy Smith Bryson


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.
