Oat Bread recipe

Last weekend I decided to try making some oat bread. I thought I would share the recipe with you.

This is how I made it, slightly modified from the book I got it from, though I have given the full quantities not the half amounts that I used.

You start with 8oz wholemeal bread flour, 4oz of white bread flour and 4oz of medium oatmeal.

I used half quantities because I wanted to knead it in the food processor.

Two flours and oatmeal

You add 2 tsp of instant yeast and 1 tsp of salt then add 12 floz warm water with 1 tsp honey mixed into it.

Knead for 10 mins. (I kneaded my half quantities for 1 min in the food processor).

Put in a warm place for a couple of hours till doubled in size. Being a heavier dough it doesn’t rise as quickly as white bread.

Knock back, then put in a large tin or two small ones and sprinkle with oatmeal.

I used a small one of course. dough in tin

Although I was using my new tin with the holes in, I decided to use a piece of greased greaseproof paper to be on the safe side.

Put back into the warm place until doubled in size.

Heat the oven to 200 deg C. Then cook for 1 hour for a large loaf or about 30 – 40 mins for the small ones. cooked loaf

Slice and enjoy. bread sliced

The recipe I used suggested it was a good bread for breakfast. Since I mostly eat bread for breakfast at the weekend it therefore seemed ideal!

    What a lovely coaster ! and I think I can figure out how to put it together with this pattern.. Thank you for all of the lovely samples to make my own coasters. I don’t think I have seen this light weight cotton here in the states… It should be fun to work with..
    Thank you again.
