Oatmeal bread

I tried a new recipe today and it turned out well, so I thought I would share it.
Oatmeal bread
(courtesy of King Arthur Flour; modified by Rene Schweitzer)
6 c. unbleached bread flour
2 c. rolled oats
4 T. butter or margarine
3 t. salt
6 T. honey or brown sugar
4 t. instant dry yeast
2 ½ c. warm milk

Dissolve yeast in milk and let dissolve for 2-3 minutes, then stir with wire whisk. In a large mixing bowl or electric mixer, combine the oats, butter, honey/brown sugar and two cups of the flour. Mix the salt with ½ c. of the flour and add to the mixture. Continue adding flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and is tacky. Cover and let rest 15 minutes. Knead (machine 5 minutes, by hand 10 minutes) and place in a lightly greased bowl. Let rise one hour—dough may not double completely in size. Cut dough in half and shape into logs, placing in greased loaf pans. Let rise for 1 to 1 ½ hours, or until the dough is about 1 inch above the pan. Bake for about 30-40 minutes in a 350 oven.

That's just mean to only share bread visually. :-) If the weather would cooperate, I may just have to try my hand at bread-baking again.

That looks so good! My last bread was a bit of a failure, so I'm anxious to try another one!
