Honey Oat Bread Recipe

Honey Oat Bread Recipe - 2 loaves

Ingredients:

1/2 cup honey

2 cups warm water (1100 - 1150F)

3 packages active dry yeast

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup olive oil or canola oil

1 egg

1 tablespoon salt

2 cups whole-wheat flour

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

tub-style safflower margarine

Method:

Combine honey with water, add yeast. Let stand 5 minutes.

 

In a mixing bowl, combine oats, olive oil, egg, salt, whole-wheat flour and all but 2 cup of the all-purpose flour. Mix with wooden spoon to form a soft dough.

 

Knead the dough by hand or by machine, gradually adding remaining 1 cup all-purpose flour, until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a 2 1/2 quart bowl greased with safflower margarine, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1 1/2 hours. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.

 

Punch dough down, divide into halves. Let rest 5 minutes. Flatten each half with hands or rolling pin into an 18 x 9-inch rectangle. Roll into a cylinder. Place seam side down in loaf pans greased with margarine. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.

 

Bake at 350oF for 20-30 minutes. When dough is set, remove from pans to oven rack and cook 10-15 minutes longer or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Cool on wire racks.
