Honey Oat Bread

Dear Bread,

I'm still madly in love with you. Why do we go so long without seeing each other... I want to see you everyday and run through fields of daisies together...
Love steph chows

In all truth, if I let myself, I'd probably bake a loaf of bread 3 times a week... and I'd probably weigh a good 20 lbs more than I do right now. Who we kidding, it would be more like 5 times a week and 50 lbs. It's a good thing I have at least a tiny bit of self restraint... Not once the bread is made though, all bets are off and I'm eating half the loaf... but self restraint in allowing myself to bake said bread. As my dad always said "you've got to pick and choose your battles" I think he said this after discovering I had unstapled and torn up the carpeting in my bedroom... and I was surprised I wasn't getting yelled at for said spur of the moment redecorating session. Oh come on you know you did something similar to your parents.. spill it :)

Back to the love of my life, bread, I mean John... Hi honey! This Honey Oat Bread was hanging out over at the Baking Barrister, and if she said it was tasty, I knew it had to be, that girl knows what she's talking about. Her loaf is much prettier than mine.. and she remembered to do the egg wash with oats on top for added flair... I forgot... cause I'm awesome like that.

The other ironic thing is she warned she used too large of a loaf pan, so I haphazardly grabbed the smaller of my two loaf pans and figured i was good to go... nope, it was still too big. Score another one for me being awesome.

So if you actually follow the directions this will look like sandwich bread. The only change I made was using 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose flour. Otherwise I stuck to the recipe.

I *looooooooooove* homemade bread! I should so make some sometime!!

I am the same way about bread. I can restrain myself until it's actually baked. Then I'll do all kinds of things so I get to eat most of it (like hide half in the freezer so Mike doesn't even know about it).

HAHAHA Poor Mike! I'm lucky that John isn't a huge bread eater... or should
I say unlucky since I don't have someone to help me not eat the whole thing!

Oooh... See, I love baking bread, but I never make sandwich bread. I feel like it would be worlds better (and healthier!) than what I could buy in the store. Definitely something I'll keep in mind!

Honey oat bread is my favorite kind of bread to make! Yours looks fabulous. And I agree I have no restraint when it comes to bread fresh out of the oven...yummm.

I need to start making homemade bread more often. I am so stuck on making cupcakes that everything else has gone to the back burner--but nothing beats the smell & taste of a homemade loaf!
