Honey Oat Bread

Course: Yeast Breads


  • 1 Cup Water Boiling
  • 1 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 3 Teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Cup Dairy Sour Cream
  • 2 Packages Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 Cup Water Warm
  • 2 Eggs
  • 6 1/2 Cups Part All-Purpose And Part Bread Flour


  • Combine boiling water, oats, honey, butter and salt. Stir until butter is melted. Add sour cream and cool to lukewarm.
  • Soften yeast in warm (105-115 degree) water. Stir in eggs and 2 cups flour. Add to oat mixture and beat until smooth. Stir in additional flour to make stiff dough.
  • Turn onto floured board and knead until elastic. Let dough rest 20 minutes. Shape into 2 loaves and place in greased bread pans. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2-24 hours.
  • When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Baste bread with melted butter while cooking to give a flakey, buttery crust. Makes 2 loaves.
