Buttermilk-Oatmeal Bread

Makes 1  1/2 pound loaf

1 cup quick-cooking or rolled oats

1   1/4 cups buttermilk

2 TBS honey

1 TBS butter

2   1/4 bread flour*

3/4 tsp salt

1 tsp active dry yeast

Spread oats in a shallow baking pan and bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 min or until lightly browned.  Stir occasionally and check often in case they brown sooner.  Cool slightly.

In bread machine, add buttermilk, then honey, then butter, then flour, then oats, then salt, then active dry yeast.

Use basic white bread cycle for 1 1/2 pound loaf if your machine does not have a whole grain cycle. 

I set my crust level on light and it turned out perfect.

*If your loaf appears too wet, add up to 1/2 cup bread flour depending on your altitude.  This recipe works perfect at just over 2,000 ft above sea level where I live.
