“Easy Little Bread”

Much like the pizza dough situation, my go-to bread had become soda bread (not that I bake bread that often!). That recipe is so easy and delicious that I got into a habit of making it.

So, also like the pizza dough, I decided to try something new this time, and found this recipe on 101 Cookbooks. It’s is a very easy and straightforward loaf, and it’s also remarkably quick. It is a good recipe for people who are intimidated by the labour-intensiveness and time demands of regular breadmaking, because this recipe has neither.

I only made one slight substitution — I didn’t have any whole wheat flour, so used all-purpose. As you can tell from the picture (the one in the original post, that is!), the loaf is rather compact and dense. In fact, when I mixed it, it seemed very wet, and so I added a bit more flour (I probably had 135-145g in total, which still isn’t a lot). It didn’t rise as much as I thought it would, but the texture of this bread is one of the best things about it. The oats add a bite to it that you don’t get in many other recipes. This bread was very popular in this household — it’s a small loaf and it didn’t last long!
