1 1 1/2-pound loaf


  • 1 ¼ cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 2 tablespoons margarine

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 ½ cups bread flour

  • ¼ cup oat bran

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  1. Place warm water, margarine, honey, bread flour, oat bran, salt, and yeast into a bread machine in the order listed, or follow the order recommended by your manufacturer if different.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until done, 35 to 40 minutes, or until done.
