Nutrition information


Choose your measure:

  • 3 cups King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour or Organic Bread Flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats (old-fashioned oats)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar or honey
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast OR 1 packet active dry yeast*
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm milk
  • 3/4 cup raisins or currants (optional)
  • *If you use active dry yeast, dissolve it in the warm milk before combining with the remaining ingredients.


  1. Combine all of the ingredients, mixing to form a shaggy dough. Knead the dough — by hand, mixer, or bread machine — until it's smooth.
  2. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and allow it to rest for 1 hour; it'll become quite puffy, though it may not double in bulk.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled surface, and shape it into a log. Place the log in a lightly greased 9" x 5" loaf pan, cover the pan with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise for 60 to 90 minutes, until it's crested 1" to 2" over the rim of the pan.
  4. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes, until a digital thermometer inserted into the center registers 190°F. If the bread appears to be browning too quickly, tent it with aluminum foil for the final 10 minutes of baking.
  6. Remove the bread from the oven, wait a couple of minutes, then turn it out of the pan onto a rack to cool.
  7. Store bread at room temperature, well wrapped, for several days; freeze for longer storage.
