Honey Oatmeal Bread

Makes: 1 loaf (1 1/2 lbs.)

3 c. plus 2 T. bread flour

In a bread machine pan, place all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select basic bread setting. Choose crust color and loaf size if available. Bake according to bread machine directions. Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed.

Tips: The directions for any loaf of bread machine bread is really very nondescript. I did things in this order. Water first, then oil and honey; oats next with flour on top, salt sprinkled over that and yeast poured in the middle of the flour. The bread came out wonderfully! If you buy yeast packets, one packet is supposed to equal 2 1/4 teaspoons. I made this bread to go with dinner, which was very good, but it would be excellent as a breakfast bread - toasted with jam! I also shared this recipe at Naturally Knocked Up.
