1 1/3Cups - Water(warm)
4Tablespoons - Butter(sliced)
3Cups - Flour
1Cup - Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1Teaspoon - Salt
1/3Cup - Brown Sugar
1 1/2Teaspoons - Bread Machine Yeast
1/4Teaspoon - Coarse Food-Grade Salt(used to sprinkle on dough exterior)
Bread Machine settings – 2 pound loaf, light color and ”basic” bread setting.
Add all ingredients starting with the water into the bread machine “bucket” (loaf pan).
Press the "start" button after entering the correct settings (2 lb, light color & basic settings).
After the bread machine has finished its FINAL kneading cycle and before the baking cycle starts, gently sprinkle on some coarse salt on top of the dough. Don’t go too crazy with the coarse salt or it will inhibit the yeast from rising.
After the bread machine has finished baking the bread, remove the bread and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread machine container as it will be very hot!
In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
