Oatmeal Wheat Bread
Recipe courtesy North Dakota Wheat Commission

1 cups quick cooking oats
cup margarine
cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups boiling water
cup lukewarm water
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm milk (100 - 115 degrees)
1 egg
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup whole wheat flour
5 - 5 cups white bread flour, divided

In large bowl, combine oats, margarine, brown sugar and honey; add boiling water, stir and let stand until lukewarm (95 degrees).

In small bowl combine lukewarm water, yeast and white sugar; add to oat mixture. Add milk, egg, salt, whole wheat flour and 1 cup white flour; beat with electric mixer 2 minutes. Stir in enough white flour to make a moderately stiff dough; knead until smooth and satiny, about 10 minutes. Dough will be slightly sticky.

Place dough in bowl coated with nonstick spray. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled (about 2 hours); punch down. Divide into 2 portions for large loaves or 6 portions for small loaves; let rest 10 minutes. Shape into loaves; place in two 9 x 5 x 3-inch or six 5 x 3-inch loaf pans coated with nonstick spray. Cover; let rise in warm place until dough is about 1 inch over top of pan, about 1 hour.

Bake in preheated 450-degree oven 10 minutes; reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake 30 minutes for small loaves or 40 minutes for large loaves.

Makes 2 large or 6 small loaves.
