ABC October 2012 - Honey Oatmeal Bread

Another nice bread I baked for ABC from the book The Weekend Baker by Abigail Johnson Dodge
Looking at the name, it made me somehow knew I'd love this bread, and it's true :)

This bread is soft, moist, aromatic and sweet from the honey and tasty, too with yummy buttery crust at the top
I didn't need anything else to enjoy this bread, I ate it plain
I had a confession to make, when the bread was just out from the oven, I couldn't wait I ate four slices at one go! *grin*
Yes, it's that good!
It's still good the next day, I just popped into oven for awhile just before eating
Microwave would be good too, only no crusty top, which I don't mind cos the taste is still really nice

I followed the recipe to the dot but I used two 20x10 cm loaf pans, also I used bread flour instead
Used breadmaker to do the kneading and first proofing, divided the dough into two hence my rather short bread :)
Due to the size, my baking time was only 25 minutes

  1. Lovely bread, Alice! Love your golden crust, mine was slight overbaked resulting in a darker crust! This is a very nice bread, I like it too! Another keeper recipe from Abby! I just love her book!

    1. thks Joyce! ya, i love Abby's book too
      considering getting more books by her :)
      to me, your bread still looks nice :P

  2. Beautiful loaf, Alice! Lovely creamy white crumb, and I agree, the taste was amazing. I ate it plain too (almost like dessert, haha). I'm glad you liked it. This is definitely a keeper. Next time I'll try adding some whole wheat flour.

    1. thank you Hanaa :)
      i think adding whole wheat flour will be great too, adding some texture :)

  3. Alice I love this bread look amazing!
