Honey oat bread is a good addition to a winter day.

Last week was cold. REALLY cold. Hide under the covers, and don’t come out of the house for 48 hours kind of cold.

Now it’s sunny and gorgeous, in typical Charlotte fashion. Should the weather turn bitterly cold again, here’s a recipe to keep you warm: honey oat bread. As always, we recommend you enjoy this with a giant cup of coffee…or tea if you’re into that sort of thing. We won’t judge.


Ingredients:

2 3/4 cups oat flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup whole milk (add a dash of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon)

1/2 cup honey

2 eggs

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grind oats in a blender until they produce a fine texture

Mix in baking soda and baking powder

Whisk salt, milk, eggs and honey together in a large mixing bowl

Combine dry and wet ingredients in the mixing bowl

Allow the dough to stand for five minutes

Option 1:
If you’re using a metal bread pan, your baking time will vary. Spread dough evenly across the pan and bake for approximately 25 minutes (option to top with a small handful of whole oats)

Brush melted butter and continue to bake for approximately five minutes

How to determine if the bread is done: place a toothpick in the center of the loaf, if comes out clean, then you’re done. If not, bake for another few minutes, and then repeat the toothpick test

Option 2:
For any other baking dish, cover the bottom of the dish and the sides with melted butter

Bake for approximately 35 minutes (option to top with a small handful of whole oats)

Brush melted butter and continue to bake for approximately another 5-10 minutes

How to determine if the bread is done: place a toothpick in the center of the loaf, if comes out clean, then you’re done. If not, bake for another few minutes, and then repeat the toothpick test

Serve with desired topping. We used blackberry jam. Add a drizzle of honey over the jam for extra sweetness.

Servings per loaf will depend on how thick you cut the slices.
