Oatmeal Buttermilk Wheat Bread

Okay. I'm going to make you hungry just by looking at pictures.  I'm going to make you wait a second though.  First things first.

So! How was your weekend? Mine was typical weekend. Nothing special, really. I worked a lot then I fit in some Christmas shopping as a family. I found a few things that I will have to go back for when I am alone.  Can you believe it's that time of year already?????? I can't. I feel like Christmas was only a few days ago and here it is again. Seriously, times flies so fast!

Okay, enough with that.

I made bread with weekend. I also played around with my new camera too so I have lots of pictures of the bread that I made. Lots. I was getting hungry just editing them for this blog. Here you go. Prepare yourself to want to make some bread. 

Doesn't that look yummy? Here's the recipe for you to make your own loaves.

Buttermilk Oatmeal Wheat Bread

1  1/2 cups rolled oats, divided
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup room temperature water
2 TBS Honey
2 1/4 tsp yeast
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 1/2 cups Whole Wheat flour
2 1/2 cups All purpose flour
2 tsp salt

For topping:
2 tsp honey

Set aside 1/4 cups of oats. Place remaining oats  in a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit  for about 10 minutes.

In the bowl of a stand mixer mix 2 cups of each type of flour, yeast, salt. Mix together; add room temerature water. Mix on low speed until combined. Add buttemilk and Honey and combine. Switch to dough hook and knead on low speed for about 10 minutes. Add more flour if necessary.

Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled; about 1 hour.

Grease or line two  8½ x 4½”  loaf pans with parchment paper.   Turn dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into two equal pieces and form in to two loaves. Brush surface of loaves with a mixture of honey an water (thin enough to spread easily. ) Sprinkle with remaining oats. Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes

Preheat oven to  375° and bake for an hour or until done. Let cool for 5 minutes then remove from the pan and place on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

This bread is perfect as toast with a slab of butter. Yum. Enjoy!
