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.
