FALL Baking...Oat Breads in the Oven and Bread Machine!

Nothing warms up the kitchen quite like a loaf of bread in the oven.
Keep your cholesterol low and your waistline small by eating yer oats!

These recipes are great, since they use cheaper all-purpose flour. They make nice, easy-to-cut loaves for sandwiches:

(for bread machines)


1 1/4 cups warm water
2 Tbsp margarine or butter
1 tsp salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
(you can sub up to half with any other flour - wheat, rye, etc. but keep the recipe at 3 cups! - I use 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2 cups all-purpose)
1/2 cups rolled oats
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp yeast


Add all to bread machine in order recommended by your machine's manufacturer. Set to regular light setting.




1 cup water
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1 cup rolled oats (NOT instant)
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar (or molasses)
1 Tb yeast
4 1/2 - 5 cups flour


Mix water, milk and oil in a pan, bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in oats. Cool to lukewarm, about 1 hour. Pour into bowl, add salt, brown sugar, yeast
and 1 cup of the flour. Beat 2 minutes, then add the rest of the flour a little
at a time. Remove dough from the bowl, and knead it 8-10 minutes on a floured board. Oil the outside, and let it rise, covered in the bowl until doubled. Punch down, and divide it into 2 loaves, placing them into 2 greased loaf pans. Let it rise in the loaf pans until doubled, then bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes, it will sound hollow when thumped. Slice when cool!
