BEST Homemade Honey Whole Wheat and Oatmeal Bread

My older daughter has been  begging me ever since I made the Pear/Apple Butter if I will make my Homemade Oatmeal Bread to go with it.  This recipe is one of my favorites.  It is moist and textured.  Just the smell of this cooking in my oven makes my mouth water.  You will NOT be disappointed!

Homemade Oatmeal Bread
by Gina Hardy

2 Tbsp dry yeast
1/2c warm water
Sprinkle of sugar
1/2c honey
1 cube butter  (½ cup)
4 tsp salt
1/2c brown sugar
4 c oats (either kind)
2 c boiling water
2 c cold water
3 c whole wheat flour
6 c white flour

  In a separate bowl, put yeast, warm water, and a sprinkle of sugar; set aside.  In mixing bowl, place honey, butter, salt brown sugar. oats, and boiling water.  Mix until butter is melted.  Add cold water.  Add whole wheat flour and yeast now.  Let mix for 10 min in mixer.  Add white flour gradually, approximately 6 cups to clean sides of mixer.  Flour surface of counter and give it a few good kneads.  It will make about 3 large loafs.  Grease pans, put dough into pans and let raise for 1 1/2 hours.  Bake at 400 for just 5 minutes.  Turn down oven to 350 and bake another 25 minutes.

Wait for yeast solution to get all bubbly, that's when you know it is ready.

I am thankful for my kitchen aid but I think I got the smaller version!  The flour is always flying out of the bowl by the 6th scoop of flour! (pictures is "as is", no clean up before the shot!)  I use the regular mixing paddle - not the dough hook.

Hire helpers to help with the kneading.   (-:  Actually, you only need to turn and knead a few times, just to get a smooth ball for putting in the pan.

Cover and let rise!  (anywhere between 1-2 hours, you can check and decide yourself how much you want it to rise.)

TA DA!  Slather butter and your pear jam on a slice for the perfect fall treat!  (OK, anytime treat!)

  1. This bread and apple pear butter is so yummy I was blessed by Selina when she gave me some and we are loving here in our home. We will definately be making this yummy bread and the butter in our home; what a treat!

  2. Yummy, I think I am going to make bread tomorrow! :)

  3. I have this recipe, I make this recipe, but my bread does not look as good as yours. Great pictures, Selina! Don't think I didn't notice Miss K in there. Does Matt know you are plastering his children on the net? Heehee. I think you have a bigger mixer than me. Is there a reason you use the paddle instead of the dough hook? I always use the hook. Maybe that's my problem.

  4. BTW, they posted an article about you on the American Clay facebook page! It was exciting, and weird, to see a picture of my house on there.

  5. I have been making bread for awhile and my bread never, ever rises well (ok, one time I made beautiful bread but it was a fluke). Got any tips.
