Honey Oatmeal Bread for Your Kitchenaid Mixer

Another experiment with my new Kitchenaid Mixer.  A success story with flavor.

5 -6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
2 teaspoons salt
2 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
2 eggs
1 tablespoon water
1 egg whites

Place 5 cups flour, oats, salt, and yeast in Bowl.
Attach bowl and dough hook.
Turn to speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds.
In saucepan, combine water, honey, and butter.
Heat to 120°F to 130°F.
On Speed 2, slowly add warm liquids to flour mixture, mixing for about 1 minute.
Add eggs; mix an additional 1 minute.
Still on Speed 2, add remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl, about 3 minutes.
Knead on Speed 2 for 7-10 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.

  1. Cover; let rise in warm place, until doubled, about 1 hour.
    Punch dough down.
    Divide dough in half.
    Shape each half into a loaf.
    Place each loaf into a greased 8 1/2x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch bread pan.
    Cover; let rise in warm place till doubled, about an hour.
    Combine 1 TBSP water and egg white. Brush tops of loaves with mixture.
    Sprinkle with oatmeal.
    Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes.
    Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
