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

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!
WOW! YUM! I don't own a bread machine, so I did this: * Proof one packet of regular yeast with the water and honey for about 8 minutes. * Add the remaining ingredients all at once and knead in stand mixer with the dough hook for another 8-10 minutes, on a medium/low setting. * Oil the bowl and the dough, cover it, and let it rise for an hour in a warm oven. * Punch it down, plop in the loaf pan and rise another 30 minutes. * Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. FANTASTIC bread. Makes a wicket grilled cheese.
