Honey Oat Bread

"Of all the breads I make, this is my husband's favorite," writes Marilyn Smith from Green Bay, Wisconsin. The subtle honey and oat flavor makes it perfect for toast or sandwiches...or as a side with a hot bowl of soup.

    This is great for toasting and sandwiches. We especially enjoy grilled sandwiches with homemade bread - this is a keeper.

    I don't have the same bread maker so I set it on 1lb and light color. The crust was a little hard but it had good flavor. Next time I will try doubling it that might help the crust not be so hard. It was not really enough for a family of four. The flavor was good and my daughter who is 7 loved it my husband asked me to make another loaf!

    I was requested to make it a second time. It was great toasted.

    This recipe is for the 3/4 lb West Bend Just for Dinner Breadmachine (which I would love to have but don't need). The dough will knead, rise and bake all in 45 minutes.I am assuming you did NOT DOUBLE the yeast.? Fast rising or bread machine yeast MUST be used in your bread maker for best results in the 45-minute cycle.

    Nice for a change. It is not overly sweet, and it is easy to make. I actually doubled it for my bread machine, and it worked!
