Servings: 16 slices


  • 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.
