Oatmeal Batter Bread

Yesterday, the ground hog saw his shadow. When I told my husband how we are going to have 6 more weeks of winter, he said we always do. We do live in Maine after all. Now, my children love winter. They put on all their winter gear and head outside to play. I actually think they play outside more in the winter than the summer. When their cousins visit, all four kids head outside. They make a snowman one week then the next week they destroy him. Today, I have scattered piles of snowman all over the yard. I would rather stay inside during this time of year. One of the best ways to warm the house is to bake some bread.
Oatmeal Batter Bread
5 cups all purpose flour
1 cup ground oats flour
2 (1/4 oz.) envelopes of quick rising yeast
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup butter
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 tsp salt
2 large eggs

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cup all purpose flour, oat flour, yeast, and sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the water and butter to 100 degrees F. 
  3. Add the butter mixture to the flour and mix until incorporated.
  4. Add 2 cups of all purpose flour, quick cooking oats, salt, and the eggs. Mix until incorporated.
  5. Add the remaining flour and mix until a soft dough forms. (More flour may be needed if the dough is too sticky.)
  6. Place the dough into a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. 
  7. Allow the dough to rise for 40 minutes or until double in size.
  8. Divide the dough into 2 greased 1 1/2 quart souffle dishes.
  9. Allow the dough to rise for another 30 minutes uncovered.
  10. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  11. Bake the bread for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  12. Remove the bread from the oven and pan. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
