If you have a mixer you can make bread!

This bread is so good and so easy to make! I use my Kitchen Aid mixer, but I bet any mixer with a dough hook would work really well. Be sure you're going to be home for a few hours, because it has to rise for two hours, but it's really easy to mix up, and you can clean or read or watch a movie while it rises.

Honey Oatmeal Bread



  1. Place water, honey, and margarine in small saucepan.
  2. Heat over low heat until mixture is very warm (120-130°F).
  3. Place 5 cups flour, oats, salt and yeast in mixer bowl.
  4. Mix wiith dough hook on speed 2 (low) about 15 seconds.
  5. Continue mixing, gradually adding warm water mixture and mix for 1 minute.
  6. Add eggs and mix 1 minute longer.
  7. Still on speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and mix about 2 minutes, or until dough clings to hook and cleans side of bowl.
  8. Knead on speed 2 about 2 minutes longer.
  9. Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top.
  10. Cover.
  11. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour, or until doubled.
  12. Punch dough down and divide in half.
  13. Shape each half into a loaf.
  14. Place in greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch baking pan.
