Light Oat Bread

This bread turned out wonderfully soft and was easy to slice. It made perfectly delicious toast the next morning! The original recipe can be found on Allrecipes.com here. My adaptation is below.



Light Oat Bread

1 c. milk
1/4 c. water
2 tbsp. margarine
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. rolled oats
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. active dry yeast

1 egg
1 tbsp. water
rolled oats

Place first 9 ingredients in bread machine per manufacturer's instructions. Select dough cycle. When cycle is complete, turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead/shape into loaf and place into a greased loaf pan. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled.

Beat together egg and water and gently brush over loaf. Sprinkle with rolled oats. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until top is golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
