Description

Whole wheat sandwich bread made with oats and honey and a whole lot of yum.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 2-½ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups Bread Or All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats, Plus More For Topping Loaf
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted And Cooled Slightly
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt

Preparation

Pour water and milk into a microwave-safe bowl; heat 30 to 45 seconds until warm (about 115ºF). Pour into the bowl of a stand mixer.

Add yeast and honey. Let sit 10 minutes until yeast is foamy.

Stir in flours, oats, butter and salt. Using a dough hook, knead on medium speed 6 minutes until dough is smooth, elastic and only slightly sticky (alternatively, knead by hand 10 to 15 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth, elastic and only slightly sticky). Keep dough in bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let rise 1 hour until doubled.

When dough is doubled, punch down and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Press into an 8-by-8-inch square, then tuck in sides slightly and roll up into a log. Transfer to a lightly greased 9-by-5-inch loaf pan, seam-side down. Cover with a tea towel and let rise 30 to 40 minutes until dough reaches the edges of the pan (but not doubled).

Heat oven to 400ºF (375ºF if loaf pan is dark or nonstick). Sprinkle oats on top of risen loaf. Bake 40 to 50 minutes, rotating halfway through baking, until loaf is deep brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove from loaf pan and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Just mixed this up following directions, and after kneading for 6 minutes the dough was incredibly wet still. added another 1/4 cup of flower and 1/8 of a cup at a time before it was only ‘slightly sticky’. hoping that the bread will turn out ok. anyone else have this issue? Also thought it was hard to tell when the dough was smooth due to the oats…

I baked this the other afternoon and it turned out great. I followed the directions about rising in the loaf pan and put it in the oven when it rose to the top of the pan but during baking, it just got really big on top. It didn’t spill over but had a huge, brown crisp mound. I thought it might have holes inside but didn’t. My hubby and I both like it for am toast but it’s so wide it won’t into my toaster all the way, have to cut in half. This is a delicious, dense, chewey bread that was fun to watch bake.

This bread is easy, delicious, and makes a high-rising beautiful loaf. I upped the grains by adding Wheat Germ, Sunflower seeds, Flaxseed (ground), Sesame seeds. It’s so pretty and tasty that I may not use my bread maker again.

This turned out perfectly! The oats didn’t want to stay on top, but who cares, it tasted divine!! I will make this again and again.
