Happy baking!



2 Cups warm water

½ Cup honey

3 Tbs melted butter

1 Cup oats (rolled or cracked,have some extra to sprinkle the tops if desired)

7 grams (1 pack) instant dry yeast (if using active yeast, activate in warm water)

4 ½ Cups all purpose flour (preferably unbleached)

Egg white or 1tbs honey + water can be used to brush the tops and sprinkle oats (optional)



Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until smooth dough forms

Transfer onto lightly floured clean working surface and knead about 5-7 minutes

The dough may be sticky but don’t be tempted to add too much flour

Add as much as you need to work with the the dough

Place the dough into lightly greased large bowl and cover with plastic wrap or damp towel

Let it rest in a warm place until doubled in size (50-60 minutes,depending on temperature )

Turn it onto working surface and knead gently using stretch and fold technique

Shape into a ball and return back for second rise (50-60 minutes)

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions

Shape as desired (oval,round or place in a greased loaf pan )

Place shaped breads on a lined baking pan (use foil or parchment paper to line)

Lightly brush the tops with egg white or honey water mix ,sprinkle with oats (optional)

Let the shaped loaves to rest and rise another 30-40 minutes lightly covered with a towel

At this point you can preheat the oven to 420° F/200° C degree

Bake 25-30 minutes or until the tops are bright golden color

Remember to switch baking pans halfway through the baking

Allow the bread to cool down at least 30 minutes before slicing


    • Yes, I’m sure you can, I’d still add a bit of all purpose flour mixed with wholewheat for lighter bread texture
