Apple Oatmeal Bread



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...I know he means well, but sometimes the Silver Fox is not helpful. He has a tendency to comment on works in progress and I really didn't need to hear his, "...that'll grow hair on your chest," as I added oatmeal to my bread mix. As a child I was very literal minded. If someone were to say I'm beside myself, you can bet I checked the room. Old habits die hard. Without thinking, I glanced down and managed to give him his laugh of the day. What can I say? While it's more nutritious than many, the bread is not a cure for male pattern baldness. It is very easy to prepare and it can be quickly made with no special equipment. Needless to say, it perfumes the kitchen as it bakes and the lingering aroma of cinnamon and apples will drive the unsuspecting to distraction. It's a really nice bread that can be made with a wooden spoon. While it is heavier than many quick breads, it's a perfect fall treat. The bread stays fresh for days and it makes wonderful toast. I hope you will try it. Here's the recipe.

Apple Oatmeal Bread
...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1-1/2 cups grated apple
1/4 cup raisins
2 large eggs
1/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch loaf pan. Set aside.
2) Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and oats in a large bowl. Add apple, raisins, eggs, milk, and oil. Mix until dry ingredients are moistened. Mixture will be stiff.
3) Put mixture into prepared pan and bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until done. Let sit for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and continue cooling on a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (about 12 slices).

I'm surprised that you didn't sub some whole wheat flour to make it even more nutritious. Hope you're enjoying your travels.

LOL! I have a similar issue with being sensitive. The slightest offhand comment will have me reeling (internally) for days...

Glad you stuck to your guns with the oatmeal. I adore it in quick breads. And funnily enough I was just craving something different for breakfast so thanks for sharing!

Apple oatmeal toast sounds lovely!

Jeannette said...

I recently was given some tiny imperfect apples...I thought of cooking with them but I had a suspicion and sure enough they taste better than any I have had even from the farmer's market of late. If I don't eat every tiny one of them fresh I know what recipe I should try them in.
Thank you!

Hmmm, I think we all have a "silver fox" roaming in the kitchen! While I don't need hair on my chest, I do believe I need this bread. What a great recipe, thanks so much.
