My recipe is for my favorite 'toast' bread.
3/4 cup old fashioned oats (DO NOT USE INSTANT)
1 1/4 cups very hot water, but not boiling
1/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
3+ cups bread flour
1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds or toasted sesame seeds
  • Using your mixer with dough hook combine the oats and hot water. Allow to stand until soft, 5 or so minutes.
  • While these are cooling whisk together the warm water and yeast.
  • Add the honey, oil and salt to the oats until well blended.
  • Add the yeast and blend together.
  • Add the wheat flour until well blended.
  • Add 2 1/2 cups of the wheat flour and blend well.
  • Add last 1/2 cup as needed until dough forms a smooth mass.
  • Add sunflower seeds until just mixed.
  • Place dough in a an oiled bowl and cover with a light cloth and allow to rise 2 hours or until double in size in a warm spot of your kitchen away from drafts.
  • Punch the dough down and fold dough into itself.
  • Place dough onto a lightly floured work surface . Lightly sprinkle flour over dough.
  • Knead dough until all the air is worked out and you have a nice smooth mass.
  • Split into two loaves.
  • Cover them for 10 minutes.
  • Form loaves into rectangles by folding dough into itself and eliminating excess air.
  • You can either free form these or use 9x5 loaf pans. Seam side down place loaves into pans. Recover with towel.
  • Set aside and let rise another hour until dough rises above the edge of the pan.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make diagonal cut across the top of each loaf (these allow the steam to escape).
  • Bake on the center shelf in the center for 45 minutes or until golden.
  • Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Enjoy!
