My friend Nikki came to visit from Atlanta a few weeks ago and while she was here I took advantage of having an extra pair of arms around and made oatmeal bread. Her arms were quite necessary as kneading can get quite tiring and becomes much fun with someone else around. I don't have a bread stone or a bread machine and I ended up finding it quite difficult to locate a simple stick-in-the-oven recipe. Thankfully I eventually did and boy, did it come out freaking delicious. We kind of messed-up with letting it rise before baking it, but it still turned out grand. Note to anyone who wants to bake bread themselves, keep the dough warm during the yeast rising process. Due to winter weather, we ended up having to place it on top of the oven while it was pre-heating in order to keep the yeast all happy and uppity. For those not keen on oatmeal bread, I also found this other bread recipe that looks tasty. I may have to try that one next.
