I have been trying to make bread for several years and I could never get the bread to be light and fluffy like store bought bread, even when I followed the recipe! This is the first recipe that I was able to make that is light & fluffy as well as nutritious and delicious! Enjoy this bread fresh with butter or honey or use it to make sandwiches or french toast! Yummy!
Making your own bread is a great way to go green not only are you saving money but you are also cutting out the packaging used as well as the fossil fuels used to transport the bread to the store!
1½ cups water
½ cup honey
½ cup butter or margarine
1 cup quick cooking oats
3 cups whole wheat flour
2½ – 3 cups of bread flour
2 Tablespoons salt
2 packets active dry yeast
1 egg white
1 Tablespoon water
