WFMW: Healthy Sandwich Bread

I make bread almost daily in my trusty bread machine. It takes almost no effort, I know exactly what goes into my bread, and my kids love it. This is the bread I make most often, which is a great sandwich bread. I made up the recipe myself after trying many other, less successful recipes. This makes a 2-lb loaf.

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Bread

Add the ingredients as they are printed into the bread machine pan.

1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups water (add more if dough is too dry in 1 tbs increments)
3 TBS butter
1/3 cup honey
2 TSP salt
1 1/2 cups white bread flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 TSP active dry yeast

Place all the ingredients in the pan, using the least amount of liquid and adding more if needed, as seen below.

Select Medium Crust and press start.

Observe the dough as it kneads. After 5 to 1- minutes, if it appears dry or stiff, or if the machine sounds like it's straining to knead it, add more liquid 1 TBS at a time until dough forms a smooth, soft, pliable ball that is slightly tacky to the touch.

After the baking cycle ends, remove bread from pan, place on cooling rack, and allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.

My daughter slices this bread from the bottom, making long slices that, when cut in half, make the perfect slices for bread. I know it's odd, but it works for us!

I've got a loaf baking right now, and the house smells so good. I bake late at night so the kids have fresh bread when they get up in the morning.

I was going to ask you for the recipe when you twittered about this. Thanks for posting it! I have a bread machine that's collecting dust in my pantry. Time to dust it off!

Yum. I don't have enough honey in the house -- time to shop. We usually just keep a couple ounces around for tea.
