Recipe: Vermont Oatmeal Maple Honey Bread

 
Being from New England, I love all things maple! Maple trees in the fall, real maple syrup and (my favorite!) maple sugar candy! YUM! I was sent this great cookbook and some bread making supplies from King Arthur Flour. I discovered this wonderful bread recipe and just had to try it! Being that I am a bread novice (in fact, I think I kill yeast just by looking at it wrong!) I was a little worried about tackling this project but I was amazed that it came out GREAT! And the aroma of freshly baked bread just makes me so hungry! Here is the recipe I used!
 
 
Vermont Oatmeal Maple Honey Bread
 
 
2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup maple sugar or brown sugar
1/2 tsp maple flavor (optional)
1 tablespoon honey
4 TBSP butter
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 1/2 cups King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour
4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
 
In a large mixing bowl, combine the water, oats, maple sugar, honey, butter, maple flavor, salt and cinnamon. Let cool to lukewarm.
Add the yeast and flours, stirring to form a rough dough. Knead (about 10 minutes by hand, 5 to 7 minutes by machine) until the dough is smooth and satiny. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour. (it should double in bulk)

 

Divide the dough in half, and shape each half into a loaf. Place the loaves in two greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch bread pans. Cover the pans with lightly greased plastic wrap and allow the loaves to rise till they’ve crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan, about 1 hour.

Bake the loaves in a preheated 350°F oven for 33 minutes.* Remove them from the oven when they’re golden brown, and the interior registers 190°F on an instant-read thermometer.

 
Yield: 2 sandwich loaves.

  1. I admit that I have a irrational fear of “yeast” but I’ve always wanted to bake bread. I just moved to New England and I’m not that far from King Arthur. I’m hoping to go for a visit and maybe get over this stupid fear. Maybe I will start with this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Diane, I saw your link on HOMEGROWN.org and – working from home today – I went for it. The loaves have now cooled enough for slicing and I LOVE this bread. Thanks so much!
