Oatmeal Bread With Molasses and Honey

Course: Side Dish


  • 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.
