Grandma oatmeal bread ( manually baked).

I made four loaves of this bread again yesterday for my friends. One friend loved it so much that she requested me to make it for her every third day. I told her see first if I got the mood and time. She said her children just love this bread.
Since I was baking four loaves this time, I did not used the bread machine but instead just bake it manually using my old oven. It is quite a big bread, about 680gm or 1 1/2 lb. Original recipe asked for 3 cups of bread flour but I just used 2 cups bread flour plus 1 cup of plain flour.
This bread is indeed a keeper and healthy.

• 1 cup water, boiling
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 3 tablespoons honey
• 1 tablespoon condensed milk
• 1/2 cup quick oats
• 1 large egg, lightly beaten
• 2 cups bread flour
• 1 cup plain flour
• 2 teaspoons active dry yeast or 1½ tsp instant yeast

1 Put oats in a mixing bowl; pour boiling water over the oats. When oats have cooled but are still a bit warm, add remaining ingredients and mix well. Rest for 15mins.
2. Knead for about 15-20mins - I used the bread machine for this on dough setting
3. let proof again for about 1 hour or till double in size
4. Punch down and let put in a big bake tin 9 x5 x6 and let proof for 2nd round till double in size
5. Bake at preheated oven 175-180'C for 30-40 mins or until golden brown and bread sound hollow when tapped.
