Hearty breads are a favorite of mine and before I try to go gluten-free again (for health reasons), I wanted to try a hearty bread with the apple butter I was making (see my Crockpot Apple Butter recipe on Friday, October 26). I discovered this recipe on the Good Housekeeping website and it reminded me of an oatmeal bread my Mother used to make.
This is a simple quick bread that would be great for breakfast, with a hearty soup, or, as you’ll see on Friday, a dessert.
OATMEAL QUICK BREAD
1 cup milk
1 cup quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1 tablespoon quick-cooking oats, uncooked
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
6 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ or 9″ by 5″ loaf pan. In large bowl, combine milk and 1 cup oats; let stand 5 minutes.
- To oat mixture, add eggs, margarine or butter, and brown sugar; mix well, making sure there are no lumps of brown sugar. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt just until blended.
- Spoon batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle top with remaining oats. Bake 55 to 60 minutes in 8 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ pan (bake 35 to 40 minutes in 9″ by 5″ pan) until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool bread in pan on wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
