Oatmeal Bread

1 c quick oats
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c brown sugar
1 T salt
2 T butter

Mix all above ingredients and pour 2 c boiling water over the top and mix.  Let cool. 

2 T yeast
1/2 c warm water

Dissolve.  Then add to the oatmeal mixture above.  Add 5 c all-purpose flour and stir until well combined and it forms a "ball" like in the first photo.  Knead.  Let rise for about an hour.  Make into 4 mini loaves and put into non-stick metal pans.  (Note: I have tried the Pampered Chef bread stone pan and it DOES NOT WORK for yeast breads.)  Let raise in pans until they are ALMOST to the top of the pan.  Usually about 30 minutes.  Bake at 350  for 20 minutes.  Serving it warm is by far my favorite, but we use this for sandwich bread, toast, etc.  This CANNOT be done in a bread machine.

HA! That is too funny - it must have been the day because it just sounded really good yesterday. I'm going to have to give yours a try though, it looks so GOOOOD!

PS. I think you still need to post your candy corn cupcake recipe! :-)
