(bread machine recipe here)
1 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter @ room temperature
1 tsp salt
3 cups of flour (we do 2 cups unbleached white, 1 cup whole wheat pastry)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (or, one package)
So here are all the ingredients.....
Start by putting the water, honey, yeast and brown sugar into a bowl
Mix well until frothy and then set aside to proof.
In a separate bowl add the butter, all purpose flour
Mix it all together well
Pour the yeast mixture into the flour mixture
Now mix it up really good, using your hands......gotta be the hands believe me
Ohhh it looks good already
Place it in a lightly oiled loaf pan and then cover it with a damp kitchen towel and let it sit in a warm spot for about an hour
Lift off the towel and punch down the dough and then let it sit another 45 minutes to an hour
Bake in a 350º for 20-25 minutes. That's it.......it's easy and it's so good.
Warm out of the oven, you see the butter melting on it?
My favorite way to eat it is slathered in butter and then drizzled with honey....Goodness it's so yummy.
