Honey Oatmeal Bread Recipe

Here is a simple honey oatmeal bread recipe we use a lot.  So I decided to make some more cheese yesterday, but I was all out of milk. So I made the gauntlet run out to the farm again, by now the ice had melted and the roads were turning into mud runs. Rinkus told me to stop being a sally, his wife drives out there everyday.

Image

so when I got home I threw some raw milk in a jar

Image

and started shaking, after 15 minutes I had some good seperation

Image

I took my hacked cheese cloth and draped it into another mason jar

Image

I slowly poured the butter jar into the sitting jar and strained out the butter

Image

I ran some cold water over the butter and wrapped it up and stuck it into the fridge

Image

I put a lid on the buttermilk and stuck that into the fridge to make some buttermlk biscuits with tomorrow

Image

and grabbed my ingredients to make my dough

Image

In a mixing bowl I dumped 3 cups of flour, 3/4 cups of oats, 2 tablespoons of yeast and 1.5 teaspoons of salt

Image

and mixed it well

Image

at the same time I had milk on to make cheese

Image

so i grabbed a cup of warm milk out of the pot

Image

and dumped the fresh butter into it

Image

I stirred for a few minutes to melt the butter

Image

and then stirred in a 1/4 cup of warm water and a 1/4 cup of honey

Image

I dumped the milk mixture into the dry mix

Image

I mixed for a couple minutes until the dough started to stiffen up

Image

and started kneading the dough in the bowl for 10 minutes

Image

the cheese had finished boiling so I set the dough on the pot to proof

Image

remember I said how big the curds were with raw milk? The cheese came out in one big lump

Image

after letting the dough proof for a little over a hour, it had doubled in size

Image

so I dumped it onto a cutting board

Image

using the bread pan as a guide, I formed a 9×12 rectangle, my daughter wasn’t fast enough!

Image

I rolled the dough up into a loaf, tucking the ends as I went

Image

and oiled up the bread pan and set the dough into the pan

Image

the pan set perfectly into the pan and I covered it with a towel to proof for another hour

Image

Image

I pulled the pan off

Image

and set a pan with a couple inches of water on the bottom rack and started preheating the oven to 350

Image

I brushed the dough with honey and sprinkled it with oats

Image

and baked it for 45 minutes

Image

it was awesome
