I picked up some honey oat bread at a Mennonite bakery recently and it was fantastic. I had a honey oat bread recipe from a Mennonite woman in my archives and the ingredient list of hers pretty much matched
the one on this, so I think this is basically the same bread. It was soft, delicious and made a great sandwich!
- 4 cups warm water
- 3 tablespoons yeast
- 1 /2 cup vegetable oil
- ¾ cup honey
- 9 cups bread flour
- 2½ cups quick oats
- 4 teaspoons salt
- Pour the 4 cups of warm water into your mixer bowl. Add the yeast. Let sit untill foamy.
- Add:½ cup oil and½ cup honey.
- Add and mix in: (knead with dough hook about 15 mins.) bread flour and quick oats and 4 tsp salt.
- Turn out on a floured surface. Form into a smooth "blob" and cut into 4 semi-equal pieces. Form into 4 balls and cover with dish cloth. Let rise about 15 - 20 minutes.
- Punch down and form into loaves and or rolls. Put on lightly greased pans. Let rise until doubled in size.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins (loaves) or 20 mins (rolls).
- Butter tops if desired.
