I just started making bread in the last three weeks. I like this recipe, but I don't LOVE it. It tastes delicious fresh out of the oven, but after a couple days not as great. First time I did this I must have killed a little of the yeast as it didn't rise very high. After I did some research on various yeasts I found that I didn't need to get my yeast wet first, so the second and subsequent times I have made this I put it all in my bread machine (on the dough cycle). In order to do it this way just add all the wet ingredients first, second sugars/oils, then the oats and flour. Last put the yeast on top. I have bread machine yeast which works best when the yeast does not get wet. I also learned that you can do this regular active yeast and instant active yeast. I'm not sure with cake yeast or not, but those are the three types of yeast I happen to have at my house, so I read as much as I could about these three yeasts. I did make the two loaves because I didn't have a big enough mixer and more than two would not fit in my bread machine. Thanks for the recipe will be a great starting place to try some more things, like I was thinking of adding cinnamon and raisons after I roll out before putting in the bread pan for some cinnamon loaves.
