Crusty No-Knead Oatmeal Bread for #BakingBloggers
Are you a blogger who would like to join in the Baking fun? Request to join our Facebook Group, or contact Sue from Palatable Pastime, we post monthly on the second Monday. This month we're sharing yeast breads!
This is a lovely, hearty bread that is great with some butter and jam at breakfast time. It has a rich nutty flavor with the combination of whole wheat and oats. It is on the dense side but has a very tender consistency.
This is a very easy bread to whip up - it has several long rises but is very hands off! It's perfect for a day you're looking for something hearty without too much effort involved.
It made a great addition to a strata casserole I put together later the week I made it - toast up some bread cubes and you have an very flavorful addition to any bread-based casserole, or make some really tasty croutons with any leftovers!
