Hubby and I like to have oatmeal for breakfast during cold season. I like to mix it with chocolate soy milk -thing that is too weird for hubby- then warm it for a minute in the microwave. I don't like regular milk. If it is dairy milk, I will mix it with instant coffee or chocolate milk. That's why we always have white and chocolate milk for hubby and I. Since unsweetened chocolate milk is still non-existence, we also have two different kind of oatmeal (for cold months) and cereal (for hot months). I pick the unsweetened one for the grain since my milk is sweet, and vice versa for hubby.
I usually buy a bulk size of Quaker oat. So sometimes I still have some leftover oatmeal because the weather is getting warmer and I change to have cereal and cold milk for breakfast. There was still some oatmeal left when I bought the new one for my mom. My mom has oatmeal for breakfast, so I thought the leftover from winter wouldn't be enough for her. So, we have about half-small-cylinder of leftover oatmeal. So, bear with me if my next recipes call for quick oats.
Oatmeal Bread From Amish and Mennonite Kitchen cookbook
Ingredients: 7 gr yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp sugar
2 Tbs butter
1 cup boiling water
2-3 cup all purpose flour
Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water
Combine oats, whole wheat flour, sugar, butter and boiling water in a mixing bowl.
After the mixture is lukewarm, stir in the yeast mixture and the all purpose flour. Mix until well blended. After mixing the dough with machine, I like to knead the dough on my kitchen counter for about five minutes.
Place the dough back to the mixing bowl. Cover with damped towel. Let rise until double.
Punch down, shape into a loaf and place it in a greased loaf pan. Let rise again.
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
Hubby loves the bread. He called me after work yesterday, telling me that he would go home late. He attended an orientation for music teaching that started at 6 and ended at 8 pm. I asked him if he would get dinner, because it passed his dinner time. He said, "no, I am still too full. I couldn't stop eating your bread. It is so good"
