I had a few friends over for lunch the other day. Fun! One of them had just met with a nutritionist and was on a menu plan that didn’t include bread or fruit- or any sugar, actually. I thought… I need to do that. But then, my husband suggested that I bake a loaf of bread. 🙂
My friend had to eat a deconstructed sandwich- and even had to remove the tomato! As I’m sure her suffering will be completely worth it, I might reconsider a dietary change when this delicious loaf is gone! 😉
This recipe was adapted from The King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook. I modified the recipe to incorporate bread flour and bake in a bread machine. It was very soft and moist. Amazing sandwich bread.
Yield: One loaf
For the Oat Mixture:
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup rolled or steel-cut oats
- 4 T plus 1/2 tsp honey
- 2 T unsalted butter
- 1/2 T coarse salt
For the Dough:
- 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- 2 cups bread or all-purpose flour
- 1/2 T bread machine yeast
- In the bread machine loaf pan: Combine the boiling water, oats, boiling water, honey, butter, and salt. Let cool slightly.
- Add the warm water.
- Add the flours; spread into the corners of the pan to create a level surface.
- Make a well in the center of the flour; place the yeast in the well.
- Set the bread machine to Basic 1 1/2 pound loaf, medium crust color. Wait & Enjoy!
