Oatmeal Bread With Molasses and Honey
- 1 cup water boiling
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon dark molasses
- 1/2 cup oats old-fashioned
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
- 3 cups bread flour
- 2 teaspoons yeast sprinkled over flour
Put the oats in a mixing bowl. Pour the 1 cup of boiling water over the oats, and set aside.
When oats have cooled but are still a bit warm (about 105 F to 110 F), transfer them to the bread machine pan. Make sure they are not much hotter, or the heat could kill the yeast.
Add the remaining ingredients according to your bread machine manufacturer's manual.
Bake on light setting.
The recipe makes a 1 1/2-pound loaf.
