Oatmeal Sandwich Loaf

Oatmeal Sandwich Loaf

This is the brown loaf that we make all the time. It took me ages to develop a recipe that was just what we like for every day and this is it! It’s got a mix of oats, wholewheat and white flours. It rises well and works well for sandwiches & toast. It makes really light & crispy toast which I love.

It’s very much a tried and tested recipe as I use this recipe for the breakfasts in our B&B.  In fact, I developed the recipe specifically for this. A quick calculation tells me that I’ve probably baked it over 500 times although I haven’t been counting!  In summer, when it’s hot and dry, I probably add about 5 ml extra water and ease back on the yeast very very slightly.  All breads are a bit like that though, even bread machine ones as the dough is a live product which is affected by its environment.
