Oatmeal-Molasses Bread Recipe

I really, really love this bread. If your family is used to "white bread only", give this one a try. They'll be won over quickly by its delicious flavor, and the oats are good for them!

This is a nice, sweet, sort of dark bread. Very, very tasty with butter as a snack, or with dinner.

3/4 cup oats
1 1/2 cups water
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp molasses
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp yeast

Use a light crust setting for this, and make sure you let the bread sit for a while before you cut it. Makes 1 1/2 lbs.

Bread is an easy food to make and enjoy. It's been made under almost any conditions you can name, and helped sustain people through all sorts of famine and trouble. Still, for truly delicious bread there are a few things to keep in mind.

Fresh Yeast: While early man didn't understand what made bread rise, we understand the operations of yeast very well nowadays. Store your yeast in a COOL, dark location. Fridges work well to keep the yeast happy until it is used.

Yeast in Warm Water: When you are ready to activate and use the yeast, mix it into WARM water. Not hot, not cold. It should be comfortable against the inside of your wrist.

Cook at the Proper Temperature: It's tempting in our fast-paced world to rush to get things done. Bread takes time to rise and cook properly. Don't try to cut corners and rush it. Bake it at the proper time listed, give it time to rise and cook. You'll be very impressed at how delicious the final result is if you take your time!
