This bread is delicious! I replaced half of the bread flour with whole-wheat, as some of the other reviewers did, and it gave it a wonderful nutty taste. I used quick-cooking (instant) oats, and still got wonderful results, so don't worry if you don't have just plain rolled ones. However, I found that the amount of flour called for was not enough... It took about two cups more than it stated in the recipe. And, it did not rise very much. I finally gave up waiting for it to double, after going longer than the rising time on each rise. Even this would be okay, except the reason that I didn't give it five stars: the baking time is off. I cooked one 9-by-5, as called for, and two smaller loaves. The thirty minutes was perfect... for the mini loaves. The other was still doughy in the middle! I had to cover it with foil and put it back in the oven. When it finally became bread, not dough, it was very tasty, and worth all the extra effort.
