About a month ago Andrew bought me a bread maker machine off Amazon. I originally scoffed at his purchase and left it sitting in the box in my laundry room for the past month. Finally a couple days ago I decided to search bread recipes on Pinterest and realized how easy it would be to make bread at home with my new bread maker.
I’m pretty much obsessed with banana nut bread and since my great-grandma is no longer here to make it for me I might as well make it myself. That was my plan until I realized I didn’t have all the ingredients for that recipe and since a quick trip to the store isn’t exactly an option right now I had to go with something I did have all the ingredients to. I ended up choosing this honey oat bread and it was sooo good! We ate the entire loaf in one sitting. It was amazingly easy too. I just threw all the ingredients in my bread maker and pressed start! That was seriously it!
-1Tbsp softened butter
-1/2 cup oats
-2.5cups flour (I used self rising flour and cut my salt content in half. You can use all purpose flour or bread flour and leave the salt content the same)
-1 3/4 tsp active dry yeast
-All your ingredients should be room temperature and your water should be warm
-Add water, honey, and bitter to your bread maker pan
-Add salt, oats, flour to wet ingredients. Do not stir, just dump them in the bread pan.
-Last add the yeast to the top, making sure it’s not mixed with the salt
-Every machine will have different settings. For mine I used the 750g setting with the medium color setting. This setting time was a total of 2 hours and 55 minutes.
-When your bread is done remove it from the pan and let it cook slightly before cutting.
