INGREDIENTS FOR YIELDS

  • 1 cup (90g) Rolled oats
  • 3 cups (375g) All-purpose/Bread flour
  • 1/4 cup (80g) Maple syrup
  • 1 1/3 cups (320ml) Boiling water
  • 1¼ teaspoons Instant dry yeast
  • 1½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) Melted butter

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large mixing bowl, or in the bowl of an electric mixer combine boiling water, oats, maple syrup, butter and salt. Mix and let cool slightly.

2. Add flour, yeast and stir until dough forms. Knead the dough for 7-8 minutes.

3. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover and let rise 1 hour, until doubled.

4. Gently deflate the dough, shape it into a log. Place the log in a lightly greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Cover the pan, let rise for about 1 hour or it's crowned about 1-inch over the rim of the pan.

5. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

6. Brush with water and sprinkle some rolled oats on top of the loaf. Bake for 40-45 minutes. If the bread appears to be browning too quickly, cover with aluminum foil for the rest of baking.

7. Let cool completely before cutting.

    When cooling softened oatmeal mixture with boiling water, cool to less than 120F. According to Bob’s Red Mill, no matter what kind of yeast you use, yeast begins to die at 120 and at 140F it will be totally killed off.
