This bread is the best I have ever made. It has been a tried and true recipe. I have used this for loaves, cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, and hotdog/hamburger buns. I have subbed whole wheat for 1/2 of the all purpose with great results. I have baked it in the bread machine, but I usually make the dough on the dough setting and then take it out, make what I want, let it rise in the warm oven and bake at 350. Of course, when it comes out nice and hot I have to rub a little real butter over it, but not too much, because this bread (without the butter on top) is only 140 calories and 1.6 grams of fat. Ok, here goes the recipe:
Light Oat Bread
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- Add ingredients to your bread machine pan in the order suggested by your manufacturer. If baking in the machine, use regular light setting. This makes 12 servings
- Lori’s Notes** I have two different brands of bread machines and I put the ingredients in the order listed on both machines and it turns out great!
- For my cinnamon rolls, I simply roll the dough into a rectangle (do not knead), spread with melted butter (or lowfat margarine) sprinkle on a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. For Caramel cinnamon rolls use brown sugar instead of white. Roll the rectangle long ways and cut into slices with a thread. Allow to rise in a warm oven and bake at 350 until nice and golden brown.
