I recently found two bread recipes that are amazing in the bread machine. Here’s the first; it makes the whole house smell delicious! Adapted from King Arthur Bread.
Here’s what you need:
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup oats (regular or quick cook)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon yeast
Here’s what you do:
1. In a large bowl, stir together the water, oats, brown sugar, honey, butter, salt and cinnamon. Mix well, and allow to cool to warm, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. In your bread maker, pour in the oatmeal mixture, followed by the flours, followed by the yeast.
3. All bread makers are slightly different, but here are the settings I chose: (1) whole wheat program, (2) medium sized loaf, (3) medium darkness.
4. Turn on your bread machine, let it do the work, and enjoy!
