Honey & Oat Wheat Bread Recipe

My $10 thrift store bread machine is without a doubt one of my best purchases ever. Since buying it we’ve enjoyed tasty treats like Chocolate Butterhorns along with homemade yeast rolls andwhole wheat pizza dough .

Last week I decided it was time to try making regular bread. I looked around at recipes and found one for Light Oat Bread that looked good. I changed it up a little the first time by substituting some whole wheat flour and adding vital wheat gluten. The second time around I experimented even more, customized it to our tastes and ended up with something we all really love, Honey & Oat Wheat Bread.

To make this you’ll need:
1 1/4 cups water
2 T. butter
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast
4 tsp. vital wheat gluten

Add ingredients in order listed or according to manufacturer’s directions to your bread machine. Set on dough cycle and allow bread machine to do it’s thing. When finished remove dough from bread machine and punch down, unless your machine takes care of that for you. Shape dough to form loaf and place in loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray. Cover and allow to rise for approximately 30 minutes or until double in size. Preheat oven to 350 degrees while dough is rising. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes.

This is particularly tasty fresh from the oven with jam or preserves but also made for a mean meatloaf sandwich last night. Enjoy!
