Ingredients
  1. 2 1/2 cups boiling water
  2. 1 cup rolled oats, (not instant) traditional or quick
  3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  4. 1 tablespoon honey
  5. 4 tablespoons butter
  6. 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  7. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  9. 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  10. 4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, sugar, water, honey, butter, salt, and cinnamon. Allow to cool to a lukewarm temperature. This should take about 10 - 15 min.
  2. Add the mixture above with the flour and add it to your stand or vertical mixer. Allow the dough to mix for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the dough has turned a smooth and almost satiny feel.
  3. Move your dough to a slightly greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap that has been greased. Allow to rise for 1 hour. This should become quite puffy in texture.
  4. Divide your dough into halves and shape each half into a loaf. Roll the halves in rolled oats and then place the dough into two greased 1-pound bread pans (8 1/2" x 4 1/2").
  5. Cover the bread pans with lightly greased plastic wrap and allow to rise until they are about 1" over the rim of the pan. This could take 60 - 90 minutes.
  6. Place the loaves in a 350 degree F oven for 35 - 40 minutes. For best results you can make aluminum foil tents and place them over the loaves after about 25 minutes. This will prevent over-browning. Using an interior thermometer confirm the bread has reached 190 degrees F on a digital read out. They should be golden brown.
  7. Immediately remove the loaves by turning them onto a rack to cool. Store at room temperature, well-wrapped. They will keep for a few days or freeze for longer storage as needed.
