Oatmeal Bread

This looks like a great recipe from a great food blogger.

Oatmeal Bread
(from Genesis of a Cook)

1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

1. In a bowl, stir together the buttermilk and rolled oats. Let stand for 30 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 1/2″ by 6 1/4″ loaf pan. Dust with flour.

3. In another bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Add the sugar, butter and eggs to the oatmeal mixture (this is where you’d add the raisins if you wanted a Oatmeal Raisin Bread). Beat until well blended. Add the dry ingredients and beat until just blended.

4. Pour and scrape the batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake until a thin wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Serve with a jam, like strawberry jam if desired.


She has a great breading pudding recipe using this bread as well.
