Breadmachine Oatmeal Bread

Here comes another bread machine bread recipe that can be converted into a mix for convenience. I have other oatmeal bread recipes on the blog if you prefer to make them by hand.

One Year Back - Radish Curry in peanut sauce
Two Years Back - Summer Salad with asian dressing
Three Years Back - Chocolate Loves Vanilla Bread
Warm Water - 1/2 cup
Buttermilk - 1 cup (warm)
Active dry yeast - 1 TBSP
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup
All purpose flour - 2 cups
Whole Wheat flour - 2 cups
Rolled oats - 1/2 cup
Salt - 2 tsp

Place oil, salt, sugar, water, buttermilk, flours, oats and yeast in this order in the pan of the breadmachine and start on white bread setting. My breadmachine pan is kind of odd shaped and yields a very wide loaf. So, I took out the dough after final mixing and second rise and plopped the dough into an oiled 9 X 5 pan and let rise there for the final time. Baked it at 375 F for 30 minutes and then turn it down to 350 F for 15 minutes or till golden. Brush the loaf with melted butter or oil after taking out of the pan.

If you want to make it by hand, refer to this post for the method: Basic White Bread.

To make the mix:
Take all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, sugar and cut in 4 TBSP of butter into it. Add yeast and oats and place them in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator. When time to make it, just measure water and buttermilk and dump the contents of the bag into the bread machine pan and start the machine.

Depending on how you measure the flour, you might need a couple of TBSP extra flour or water. Test once and then adjust as per your measuring habits.
