Some of you may know Zebbycat and his person, Michelle. Knowing that I make bread every night, when Michelle visited her parents for Christmas, she asked her Dad for a couple of his bread recipes. I have made this one several times, and never had leftovers. I urge you to try this; it's got a nice flavor, and with the oats, it's healthy, too. Best of all, none of the kids ever noticed that it's good for them. And since I have some of the pickiest eaters on the planet, that's high praise indeed.
NEW ZEALAND OAT BREAD
3 & 1/2 cups flour
1 cup whole oats
2 tablespoons milk powder
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons margarine or olive oil
1 & 1/2 cups water
1 & 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons yeast.
Mix in your bread machine, or follow my link on the side for directions ---->
Michelle's Dad recently came up with an alternative, which I found hilarious, but don't recommend unless you need something hard:
Follow the directions above, omitting the yeast, and let it bake in the bread machine.
Jeepers, I would have been infuriated!
Michelle, Thanks ever so much to you and your Dad both for this wonderful bread. And, of course, thanks to Zebbycat for letting you leave home to visit your parents for Christmas!
