So I made up another bread recipe today. ( I know I have a disease) This one was inspired by my trip to the grocery store. I went there to get the apple cinnamon instant oatmeal for my Apple Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal bread and I saw that Quaker makes a Raisin Date Walnut instant oatmeal and as my luck would have it, it was on sale so I thought I would try it and (luckily I restrained myself from getting all the varieties that were on sale).
2 cups of warm water
1/2 cup of honey
2 TBS yeast
5 1/2 – 6 cups of flour (mixture of wheat and bread flour)
5 packets of Raisin Date Walnut instant Oatmeal
3 TBS of butter or canola oil
1 tsp. of salt
add all of the ingredients in your mixing bowl in the above order and mix for 2 minutes add enough flour that your dough just begins to clean the sides of the mixing bowl. Let rise until it doubles, punch it down and knead it a few times. Form it into loaves or what have you. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-32 minutes. Bask in the heavenly smells emanating from your oven as your bread bakes and ENJOY!!
Today I had enough dough to make 2 loaves plus some pull-a-parts for the kids after school snack.
