I love this bread. Seriously. It stirs together quickly and is always so moist and perfect. I love it with soup, especially one with a lighter broth. Last night we enjoyed it with Cheeseburger Potato Soup. Mmmmmmmmmmm!
Hearty Oat Round
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 2 additional tablespoons of oats, for the top
Combine flours, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add egg, milk and oil, stirring gently by hand. When batter is just moistened, spread into greased baking dish. I prefer a 10 inch round. Sprinkle oats on top.
Bake 40-45 minutes at 350F. Allow to cool 5 minutes before slicing.
A note on substitutions:I have had success in using skim, 2% and whole milks, half and half, and soy milk. I have also used egg substitute without compromising texture or flavor.
