Honey Oat Bread

Our son Elijah is quiet the cook these days, it is great to see. Yesterday he made a Honey Oat Bread which tasted great. Here is his recipe -

4 1/2 to 4/3/4 cups of organic Whole Wheat Four
1 1/2 tblsp of traditional dry yeast
1 cup of Water
1 cup of Milk
1/4 cup of Honey
1/4 cup of  oil ( he used olive oil)
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup of porridge oats

In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups of flour with the yeast. In a saucepan melt the honey together with the milk, oil and water. When it is cool enough (lukewarm) add this to the flour and yeast. Add as much of the leftover flour to make a nice dough. Knead for 10 minutes, and let rise on a greased or floured baking sheet for 45 minutes or until doubled in size. Punch down and re-knead and leave again to rise for another 45 minutes. Bake the loaf at 350 degrees for about 30 - 40 minutes or until it is nicely colored and it sound hollow when you tap the bottom.




When cooked let the bread rest for about 1/2 hour. Delicious served with butter!
