Scottish Oaten Bread Coca-Cola Recipe

* you may substitute 1/2 cups of dried prunes. Lightly spoon the flour into a measuring cup; level off.

Step 1

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, rolled oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 2

In another bowl, beat with a fork, the egg, oil, and vanilla extract until well blended. Add to the flour mixture. Add the Coca-Cola, prunes, and nuts; blend thoroughly with a spoon. Turn into a well-greased, lightly floured, 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Garnish with prune halves, if desired.

Step 3

Bake in a preheated, 350 degree F oven for about 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out cleans. Cool on a rack for 20 minutes before removing the bread from the pan. Store in foil overnight before slicing. Makes 1 loaf.
