My House Smells Amazing

Sometimes, the creative urge turns to pursuits other than writing.

Honey Oat Bread

Delicious, delicious non-writing pursuits.

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.

    • 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. šŸ˜‰

    • Likewise! I look forward to seeing what yummy thing you’ll make next. šŸ™‚ As for this bread, I’m definitely going to have to make it again when my husband returns from his deployment. So tasty!

    • 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.
