Whole Wheat Bread: Honey Oat
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3/4 cup water
- 4 tbsp (1/2 stick )unsalted butter
- 4 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp salt
- 4 tsp (instant yeast)
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup (old fashioned) oats
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- milk or egg wash to brush on-top
In a large bowl, Mix the milk, water, butter, honey, salt, yeast and whole wheat flour. Next add oats and whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup at a time until the dough forms a ball.
Knead for about 10 minutes until the dough feels elastic and upon pressing your finger in, it bounces back. . Place in a well oiled, large bowl and allow to double by resting it under a towel in the bowl for about one hour. Once doubled divide dough into two pieces and form logs and place in well oiled loaf pans.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise again for about one hour. Once risen to the brim of the loaf pan, brush with milk or an egg and sprinkle oats on top.
Bake in a 400 degrees F preheated oven for 25 – 30 minutes until the loaf is golden. If the loaf is browning too much (around 25 mins ) tent with aluminum foil and continue to bake.
Cool, Slice, Enjoy!
