The automatic bread machine takes the drudgery out of homemade bread-baking. If you like a classically shaped loaf or round loaf, you can use the machine to mix and knead the dough and then finish it in a conventional pan or on a baking sheet. 

This easy bread machine oatmeal bread is flavored with a combination of honey and molasses. It's a fabulous toasting bread, and it makes great sandwiches. You'll love this lightly sweetened bread with jam in the morning, and it is particularly good with baked beans



  • 1 cup boiling water

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon dark molasses

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 3 cups bread flour

  • 2 teaspoons instant or bread machine yeast, sprinkled over flour

Steps to Make It

  1. Put the oats in a mixing bowl. Pour the 1 cup of boiling water over the oats, and set aside.

  2. When oats have cooled but are still a bit warm (about 105 F to 110 F), transfer them to the bread machine pan. Make sure they are not much hotter, or the heat could kill the yeast.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients according to your bread machine manufacturer's manual.

  4. Bake on light setting.

  5. The recipe makes a 1 1/2-pound loaf.


  • Use the machine to mix and knead, and then shape into a round loaf or into small rolls. Bake at 350 F for about 35 to 45 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when lightly tapped with a finger.
