"Our family goes through a loaf of this every day. Slightly sweet, and light. Great with dinner, and a favorite for sandwiches." — Merrilee

This was very easy to make and it came out great! I did make one change, however. Instead of using all white flour, I used half white flour and half whole wheat flour. This gave it more fiber and a better, nuttier taste. Also, I don't use bread flour in my bread machine. Unbleached all-purpose flour is good enough for me because if I did have all these different flours, I wouldn't have any room in my cabinets. Although I don't use bread flour, I do add vital wheat gluten, which is available at supermarkets. This gives more volume to loaves and a more bread-like texture. The rule is to add one teaspoon of wheat gluten per cup of flour or one and a half teaspoons per cup of whole grain(or whole wheat)flour. I hope this tip was helpful for those who may be having trouble with the size of their bread loaves as a result of not using bread flour. I will be making this bread again soon!
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to make but with a few tweaks. I doubled the recipe as my machine makes 2lb loaves. Used 1 1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 c honey, 1 tsp salt (found it strange recipe didn't call for this), 1/2 of rolled oats, 1/2 rolled oats ground to powder, 4 1/4 c AP flour and 1 tsp yeast. Taste is good, soft texture but it is a very dense loaf. Will most like make again, tweeking the recipe
Hi All, I submitted this recipe a couple years ago and am just now checking back. We still go through a loaf a day (the kids even fight over the crusts!), but we do use 2 1/3 cups of flour not the 2 cups that I originally wrote the recipe as. A "heavy" tsp. of yeast is nice also. Will try the butter in place of oil, sounds good. Enjoy!! Merrilee Bell
I really liked this recipe - the bread was very tasty and had a good texture. My only problem is that I don't like bread from a bread machine in general - the crust is too thick. So the second time I made it, I let my machine just make the dough and then I baked it in the oven instead (350 degrees until nicely browned). It turned out WONDERFUL! I now make this bread all the time - at least twice a week!
I found this to be the best bread machine recipe yet. Not too dense like many are. I, too, increased the yeast and flour. I also have tried several variations that work well and give a different flavor. Try adding seeds or nuts (ie, sunflower, pumpkin, pecans, walnuts). They are delicious. Add them during the second kneed or at the add-in buzzer. Also, you can replace some of the flour (I generally use 1/3-2/3 cup) with either cornmeal or whole wheat flour. I also have replaced the honey with molasses. They all work well and you can mix and match! Enjoy
We love this recipe.
I make this bread 2x per wk. at least. Family loves it plain, in sandwiches, as french toast etc.
Some small changes that work for me...
Add 1 tbsp brwn sugar, 1/3c whole wheat flour, 1 extra tsp yeast, reduce bread flour to 2c (or 2 1/4c depending on humidity).
Bake on white, med. crust setting for 1.5lb loaf.
Comes out PERFECT every time!
Perfect and foolproof bread. One of the few recipes I found needed no changes or tinkering. I didn't like the description of its being lightly sweet, however, so I reduced the honey by about a third, only for my own preference, though I'm sure it's excellent just as written. Great bread for toasting or sandwiches with a mildly different taste because of the oatmeal. I used a new bread machine which I haven't mastered yet, but this recipe came out perfectly on the first try. This will be one to hang on to!
This is absolutely delicious! Crusty on the outside and very soft on the inside. Slightly sweet tasting. I will be making this one a lot to use for sandwiches or to just eat as a snack. Perfect!
