Oatmeal Bread Recipe

1 1/4 cup warm water
1 T Oil
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 t salt
3 Cups flour
1 Cup oats
2 1/2 t Yeast

Mix everything together in a bowl. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead the dough for about 6-10 minutes, until it's smooth and velvety. Coat bowl in oil, then put dough in bowl, coating dough in oil. Cover with wet towel and let rise until doubled...a little over an hour. Punch down the dough, oil the pan you'll be baking in, and put the dough in that pan to rise once more, until double. (40 min - 1 hour or so). Sprinkle top of dough with oats, brush on butter, and bake in preheated 350 degree oven until bread sounds hollow when you tap it. (about an hour).

More or less, that's what I've been doing. I made another loaf of this last night. Mmmmmmmmm!

I've followed you and your mom's blogs off and on for a couple of years (found you on women hikers), but haven't commented before. Made the oatmeal bread last night and it was soooo yummy!! Thanks for the recipe!
