Rich, dense, sweet -- enough said. Such a good toast bread!

Turned out great. What I did differently was substitute 2 cups of bread flour with whole wheat and I did knead bread in mixer on dough hook and then by hand as I felt mixer was getting too much of a workout! Definitely a keeper.

I was in a bread making mood today so after making a French baguette i decided to try this recipe. I did cut the recipe in half to make 1 loaf--I love being able to do that by changing the serving size and letting Allrecipes do the math!!! I was very pleased with this bread! It is dense but still soft like a sandwich bread. I have all ready made sandwiches with it for the hubby's lunch. It did take awhile to rise...not sure if it was that the oat mixture was too cold when I started adding the other ingredients and the yeast was just slow to activate or it needs a touch more yeast? I love the taste of molasses in a bread and paired with oatmeal it is a winning combo! Thanks for the recipe Swaneeramsey!

Delicious bread! Not overly sweet but it has a nice "dark" flavor due to the molasses. I used milk instead of water and a mix of all-purpose and whole wheat flour. I also halved the recipe to make 1 loaf. This bread is moist in the center with a nice hefty crust that is perfect for dipping into soup! Thank you for the recipe!
