This easy bread machine oatmeal bread is flavored with a combination of honey and molasses. It's a fabulous toasting bread, and it makes great sandwiches. I love this lightly sweetened bread with jam in the morning, and it is excellent with bean dishes.

What You'll Need

  • 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

How to Make It

Put the oats in a mixing bowl. Pour the 1 cup of boiling water over the oats.

When oats have cooled but are still a bit warm (about 105 F to 110 F), transfer them to the bread machine pan. Add the remaining ingredients according to bread machine manufacturer's manual.

Bake on light setting.

Makes a 1 1/2-pound loaf.
