Baking Bread

O and I baked bread this morning. Although, really we just put the ingredients in the bread machine and pressed start. It was lots of fun and very messy. O loved pouring the ingredients into the container. Unfortunately, her aim was a little off, so we had flour everywhere. She also liked mixing everything together, and she even snuck a few bites. Yuck! We made honey oatmeal bread, which is my favorite bread machine bread. Its delicious! Here is the recipe:

1 1/4 cups water
3 cups bread flour (we used 1.5 cups of bread flour and 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour)
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons dry milk powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons margarine
1 tablespoon active dry yeast

Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select White Bread setting, and Start.


  1. Sounds delicious! We'll have to try your recipe.

  2. Thanks, Robyn! I just linked to your blog, and I enjoyed reading it. I've added you to my google reader!

  3. Thanks Robyn You know I never seem to have milk powder around when the recipe calls for it.When that happens I usually use milk in place of water and it works great.Just a thought in case anybody else had that problem
