A simple and healthy oatmeal bread



Since my last post on oatmeal bread, I have so many requests for Oatmeal bread from my friends. I think this is because there are no oatmeal bread for sale available in the market. There are wholemeal bread but not oatmeal. Oats is more healthy than wholemeal as oats are known to lower cholesterol.
I made this simple and healthy oatmeal bread on my bread machine last night with condensed milk. The texture of the bread was quite soft and the skin of the bread was surprisingly crispy. This is a very simple bread recipe which anybody can make and the measurement is quite accurate and exact

Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup quick oats
• 3 tablespoons condensed milk or honey/brown sugar
• 1 cup + 1 tablespoon boiling water
• 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 3 cups bread flour
• 1/4 cup ( 60ml) milk
• 2 teaspoons active dry yeast ( I used instant dried yeast)

Preparation:
1.Put oats in a mixing bowl, pour hot boiling water over the oats. When oats have cooled but are still a bit warm, put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add a little more flour or water if necessary. Mix till dough is not sticky and leave side of bowl or not sticking to hands.
2.Transfer to bread pan and select basic and light crust and press start.
