Oats Bread

I love the golden brown colour of my loaf when it is out from oven

Pardon me for my poor slicing skills....

Oats Bread (Recipe adapted & modified from Carol 烘焙新手必备的第二本书)

Ingredients
(A)
Oats 50g
Cold water 150ml

Cook together in a saucepan over low heat till boiling. Off the stove & cover the saucepan with lid for 15mins. After 15mins later, lift the lid & mix till it become a dough.

(B)
Bread flour 250g
Bread improver 3g
Yeast 3/4tsp
castor sugar 20g
salt 1/4tsp
oil 20g
cold water 80mls

Egg for glazing
Extra oats to sprinkle on dough

Method

1) Put all ingredients (B) & the oats dough into a mixer. Beat until it become a non sticky dough.

2) Remove dough & give a few light kneading on a lightly floured work surface. Divide into 2 equal portions & shape into balls.

3) Flatten & roll out each dough into an oval shape. Roll up swiss roll style. Place in a bread loaf tin (well greased), seams side down. Let dough proof for 1 hr or until the dough rise up to 90% of the height of the tin.

4) Brush the top of bread dough with egg slightly & sprinkle oats on top. Bake at preheated oven at 180degC for 30mins.

5) Remove from oven & unmold immediately. Let cool completely before slicing.

Sandwich with ham & melted cheese ~ healthy breakfast !

Up close & personal with the bread...

Yums! Texture looks great, Cathy :) How long did you knead the bread? DId you use improver this time?

CaThY said...

Hey Eelin,
Thanks or your kind words. I always use my mixer to knead my bread dough, roughly 5-6mins & it will become a non sticky dough. Power huh? Yup, I used improver most of the time as I got a bottle & do not want to waste it. =)
