    Something else. Very tasty. I have made this bread several times now and it always turns out well. It is a good recipe for add-ins. For example. try throwing in a handful of grated Cheddar cheese for a cheesy bread. Also, when you make this bread, do be sure to measure in the oil before adding the honey. This way, you have an oiled spoon to measure the honey with, and the honey just slides out nicely instead of sticking to the spoon.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Made it healthier. This was a great recipe. My first non-sweet bread recipe I've made from scratch. Very tasty and delicious. I did as others recommended, and doubled the recipe to create a full-sized loaf. I baked it at 180 for 1 hour in a loaf tin, and that was perfect. Substitutes I did: skim milk. Extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and I added 100g of ground flax seeds. Both the olive oil and ground flax added healthy fats to the bread, and the flax also added a little extra fibre and protein. I also didn't grind the oats, either. I like having big pieces of grain in my breads. Thanks for sharing your recipe! It's so nice baking bread at home so you can control what goes into it.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Made it more kid friendly. Good country-style bread...if you have kids you may want to add a little extra honey. A great recipe for a pretty loaf of bread that doesn't require "rise" time. I recommend slicing an "X" in the top of loaf with a sharp knife before baking so finished product looks even prettier.  -  29 Sep 2008
