I know that baking bread intimidates a lot of people, but it doesn’t have to! If you measure correctly, and follow the directions everything should come out perfectly! I used to be scared of yeast, but after some trial and error, and realizing when it says to knead for 8 to 10 minutes, they really mean it. I have had way more success than misses over the past few years. Still scared? My good friend Roxana is seriously the bread master. She has a series called “Bread Baking 101” going on. You should definitely check it out.
To me there is just something about fresh bread baking in the oven. It fills the house with the best aroma, and you just instantly feel calmer. I was having a stressful morning the other day, so I decided to head to the kitchen to work it out with some dough. Something about kneading the dough and watching it rise just made me feel better. I have never had this kind of bread before, and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The oats give it body, texture, and a wonderful flavor.
When my husband came home he wasn’t really in the mood for what I had planned for dinner that night. Instead we decided to make some eggs, and have this bread. Still warm, with a little butter for me, honey for him, and it was delicious! Soft, tender, and just what I was looking for. It would be great for toast, or sandwiches as well.
