Baking day

Today's bread is a light wholemeal and oat loaf.

295ml water / 1 1/4 cups*
25g butter / 2 tbpns*
6g salt / 1 tsp*
375g flour / 3 cups* I used half wholemeal
40g rolled oats / 1/2 cup*
25g brown sugar / 2 tbspns
6g active dry yeast / 1 1/2 tsp*

*American measurments

The original recipe is made in a bread machine. I just used the bread maker today for mixing and proving, then shaped by hand and baked in the oven. If you made it entirely by hand I think you would have to adjust the amount of water as it produced a very soft dough.

I think this would be a big hit with kids, its not too heavy, nice texture and seems to stay soft and fresh, lovely for sandwiches.

Hope you have a lovely day

MMMmmmm ~ that looks so yummy!
I've not tried adding oats to the mix before, so I'll give it a go with my next batch.

Thanks Catherine, you don't really notice the oats, they just seem to blend in.
