Oats And Honey Bread

After devouring all the Diwali sweets and snacks I have developed an aversion to sweets....but I know it's going to be temporary and soon I will again enjoy sweet treats. 

So for a change I baked this bread and I was really impressed by it. It has got beautiful crust and soft insides and tastes excellent with either honey or even butter. My kiddo enjoyed this with spoonfuls of honey and has ordered me to make this more frequently. I was quite surprised at her request since the only bread she eats is white milk bread. And this bread is now going to feature regularly in my kitchen.


Recipe Source: Allrecipes

Ingredients: 

All Purpose Flour- 3 Cups
Rolled Oats- 1/2 Cup + little more for sprinkling on top
Honey- 3 tbsp
Unsalted Butter- 2 tbsp (at room temperature)
Salt- 1 tsp
Active Dry Yeast- 1 1/2 tsp
Warm Water- 1 1/4 Cup
Milk- For brushing the top
Dried Melon Seeds, Sunflower Seeds- little for sprinkling (optional)


Procedure:
  • Combine flour, oats and salt in a large bowl and keep aside.
  • In the warm water add in butter, honey and yeast. Mix till dissolved and leave aside for a couple of minutes till the yeast turns frothy.
  • Add the yeast mixture to the bowl containing the dry ingredients and mix.
  • Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes till the dough turns smooth and elastic. Transfer the dough to another bowl and cover the bowl with a greased cling film. Leave the dough to rise for about an hour.
  • Punch back the dough and knead for a couple of minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal parts and roll each piece in a ball. Arrange the balls in a greased baking dish and cover again with cling film. Leave it to rise for another 45 minutes.
  • Remove the cling film and brush the top with milk and sprinkle oats and seeds on top.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C for 10 minutes. Bake the bread for 35-40 minutes or till the crust turns golden brown.




Serve the bread warm with honey....it tastes divine.

  23. Do you think this bread would go well dipped in cheese fondue? Searching for a good bread recipe to pair with cheese fondue...

  25. This bread is slightly on the sweeter side so it pairs well with jam, honey or nutella... I don't think that it will be good with cheese fondue, I would prefer a baguette with cheese fondue. Thanks for dropping by Arva.
