Sweet Oat Bread Recipe

Step 1

Not many bakeries still offer a basic yeasted bread that's rich with butter and eggs. This one's delicious - a good bread to introduce a friend or family member to the delights of whole grain bread.

Step 2

Mix the water, honey, and yeast and let sit a few minutes. Add remaining ingredients, adding whole wheat flour as needed. Knead dough well until it is smooth and elastic. Let rise, shape into loaves and place in oiled pans. Let rise again and bake at 350F for 45 min.

From the Arcata Co-op Bakery. Makes 2 - 1 1/2 lb loaves.
