Sunday lunch with a new bread recipe

This was our Sunday lunch menu.  The roast beef was tender and salad was crispy and refreshing.
So nice when everything at a meal turns out just right!

I tried a new bread recipe,  and it will be a keeper recipe.  It was soft and delicious and the honey flavor was just noticeable enough.
I mixed the dough up in our bread machine on the basic setting.
After the first rise, I took out the dough and shaped it into a loaf and put it to rise in a well greased bread pan,  (vintage, of course, just because I like them)
Then after it had doubled in size,  it baked at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.

Honey Oatmeal Bread
1 Cup water
1 T oil- I used sunflower but I am sure any cooking oil would be fine
1/4 Cup honey
1 t salt
1/2 rolled oats- I used old fashioned oatmeal
2 1/3 Cups bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast

Put ingredients into bread machine in this order,  set to the basic bread cycle.

that white plate in the first picture is from The Write Plate
My daughter worked for them years ago and got some nice pieces and she generously gifted me with 2 of them.  
this is not an affiliate link,  just info in case anyone had a question.  I think they are expensive but they are really good quality and fun to use 


  1. Looks delicious so I pinned it to Pinterest! Can't wait to make it this week!


  2. yum...sounds like the perfect meal to me! The bread is beautiful...I love an oat/honey combination!

    1. and what a cut little menu you did, too!

  3. Your dinner sounds delicious! I love your menu, is it just a plate or platter with a dry erase marker? Clever idea.

    1. Any plate and dry erase marker would do the same thing. The name brand ones have holes in the border so ribbon can be woven through.

  4. I have made this recipe - it is delicious :-) m.

  5. Yum, yummy..thanks for sharing the recipe too!!

  6. Great recipe. I love Oatmeal Bread! Thanks so much for sharing at the Creative HomeAcre Hop!
