Sometimes, the creative urge turns to pursuits other than writing.
It had been a while since I’d baked bread, but the fancy struck me today to browse Tasty Kitchen for something new to try. I happened upon a recipe for Honey Oat Bread, submitted by one Erin (a fellow blogger, apparently). Intrigued by the promise of a no-knead bread, I did a quick pantry run-though to see if I had the necessary ingredients. I was pleased to discover that I did, by and large.
- I used half AP flour and half bread flour.
- The only oats I had on hand were “quick oats,” not the “old-fashioned oats” called for in the recipe.
And the verdict is… delicious! I loved how quickly the dough came together, and the results are simple and satisfying. I can see this becoming part of my regular bread-baking rotation.

Sooooo when can Bug and I cone over?
Whenever! Just give me a little warning so I can run the vacuum; some of the cat hair tumbleweeds might be enough to engulf small children. 😉
So glad you guys liked it! And happy to have found your blog in the process!
Likewise! I look forward to seeing what yummy thing you’ll make next. 🙂 As for this bread, I’m definitely going to have to make it again when my husband returns from his deployment. So tasty!
Those are beautiful loaves of bread! Nice job! I may have to try these.

Deliciousness in a photograph. I may just have to try to bake some bread this weekend. This will be my first time so let us hope I don’t mess up too badly!!!
Cheers for baking bread! It’s truly not as difficult as I thought it would be before I started making it. I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it quickly.
