TWD – Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

10-20-08 528 copy

This bread is deceptive in every way. The name isn’t particularly appealing (unless you’re an oatmeal FREAK) or eye catching (I would have skipped right over it). The ingredients aren’t anything special, just your run-of-the-mill staple ingredients plus the addition of applesauce and oil instead of butter. It tricks you into thinking that this bread is nothing short of plain jane.

This bread is PHENOM! It is wonderfully aeromatic: spices that waft together to remind you of that snowy day during Christmas season. It is moist and keeps well. And the flavor OH THE FLAVOR! So simple yet divine. But the star, was the simple addition of pecans and brown sugar pressed atop the loaf prior to baking. It makes ALL the difference.

I subbed apple butter for the applesauce (which gave it a little extra kick in the spice department) and I added rum soaked raisins, just cus I could.

You should try this bread. I promise, you won’t be sorry.

A big thanks goes out to Natalie ofย Oven Love for choosing this delightful recipe. Get the recipe here. I will be making this again and again.

Up next week: Crunchy and Custardy Peach Tart — I’ll be scaling way down as peach desserts pretty much hate me, but I am excited about this one!

  1. Your bread looks fantastic! I love that this recipe uses run of the mill ingredients. I waited to the last minute to make this and was thrilled that I had everything I needed.

  2. I’m finally getting by to check out your oatmeal bread and I LOVE your apple butter idea! I have a jar in my fridge from the double apple thing we did a few months back. Can’t wait to try this again!

    Thank you! It’s in the oven baking right now and smells incredible!!

    I added a TBL of butter to the topping to make it stick better. I can’t wait to try it.

    OK.. I know you’re supposed to let it cool. I tried.. for about 10 minutes, I made one medium sized bread pan and one small one. The small one cooled quickly and we tried it. Absolutely delicious! We had it warm with a bit of home made vanilla ice cream on the side. Just outstanding in every way. I had no trouble slicing it. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
