If you have read some of my older blogs you would know we like to buy in bulk and store food in glass jars. My husband bought me the “Outlander Kitchen” (http://outlanderkitchen.com) book last year and with it a ton of oats. Then he went to sea and I had no one to cook and bake for. I was pregnant and had no appetite most of the time and even though my family loves my food I felt insecure in giving it away to others with different tastes. So I didn’t use much. I had my baby at the start of the year and decided to finally start using it up. Here is one recipe I wanted to share (not from “Outlander Kitchen” just FYI)! Steel Cut Oat and Honey bread! It’s a bit crumbly but delicious! You can easily add to it as well. Add in raisins, chocolate chips, spices such as cinnamon, etc. You can top it with a glaze, honey butter, chocolate drizzle, etc as well. I made mine “plain” to show you a good starting point. It doesn’t taste plain at all though! You can easily use this blend in muffin tins as well for individual treats.
You will need:
*2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
*1 cup steel cut oats (I used quick cook but both work)
*1 cup boiling water
*2/3 cup milk (I used cashew)
*1/4 cup honey (at least!)
*3 tsp baking powder
*1 tsp salt
*1/2 stick butter (or 4 tablespoons oil of choice)
*butter, cooking spray or whatever you prefer to grease your bread pan
Start to preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit as the next steps will go quickly.
Let cool fully then slice and enjoy!
