Honey Oatmeal Applesauce Bread #BreadBakers
Honey Oatmeal Applesauce Bread is delicious and definitely healthier than the white bread. The best part was it was eaten by Akanksha who thought the whole bread sounded sweet and smelt sweet.
For #BreadBakers we take turns in hosting and the host makes a choice of the kind of bread we will bake. Sounds pretty interesting, huh? Join us.
This month Renu is our host and we are connected on different blogging groups I know she prefers healthy bakes and her choice was healthy bakes with fresh fruit and no sugar. Tricky one what are you going to feed the yeast?
I was not sure I will participate in any of the challenges. Have so many challenges at home but here I am participating in Bake-a-Ton a challenge that Srivalli has every year and we post 3 times a week. The condition is just baking… anything baked is acceptable.
With just 1 recipe written I have committed to the full month so now I am scrambling. How I manage to do this to myself I don’t know. I chide myself every time and yet end up setting up herculean tasks.
Okay, enough of my rambling and”feeling sorry for myself trip “let’s get down to the bread of today the one I have copied from King Authur Flour.
This bread is dense-textured, yet moist sandwich loaf. Slices beautifully can make sandwiches and in case there are any leftovers apparently it stays fresh. In my place like any other bread, it disappeared…
- First I don’t know why but I got confused and soaked the instant yeast to rise.
- Second, my pan was too broad my loaf pan is missing so I did not get the promised height.
- Also, I used sweet potato in place of potato flakes we do not get potato flakes here and I did not have potatoes.
Honey Oatmeal Applesauce Bread #BreadBakers
- Serves: 16 slices
- Preparation time: 20 minutes
- Cooking time: 50 minutes
- 3/4 cup lukewarm water
- 1 1/2 cups “quick” rolled oats
- 2 3/4 tsp instant yeast
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup applesauce unsweetened
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup sweet potato boiled and mashed
- 2 1/4 cups maida/all-purpose flour
- 3 tbsp milk
- 2 tbsp oats, to sprinkle on top, optional
- In case you are using active yeast with the brown sugar set it in warm water to proof.
- In the lukewarm water add the oats mix well.
- Let rest for 20 minutes so that the oats absorb the water and soften up.
- After 20 minutes add the ingredients except for the milk and oats for sprinkling to a mixing and mix using your hand, mixer, bread machine. The dough must feel springy once you finish kneading it. By bread dough standards it will be quite stiff.
- Lightly grease the bowl and place the dough in it. Cover and let it to rise, for 2 hours or till it doubles; it’s a slow riser.
- Grease lightly an 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ loaf pan. Set aside.
- Deflate the dough gently and shape it into an 8″ log.
- Cover the pan loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap.
- Let the dough rise for 1 45 minutes to 2 hours or until 1 1/2″ over the rim of the pan.
- Towards the end of the rising time in my case, it was about 1 hour 15 minutes, preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
- Brush the top of the loaf with milk, and sprinkle with oats.
- Bake bread for 20 minutes.
- Tent it loosely with aluminium foil, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
- The bread is done when it is golden brown.
- Cool the bread outside the oven for 5 minutes before inverting it on a cooling rack.
- Let it cool completely before slicing.
- Store well-wrapped at room temperature.
