Blueberry Oat Bread

Blueberry Oat Bread

This recipe is based on one that appears in my KitchenAid recipe booklet. I made a few very minor adjustments, though. Enjoy!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp allspice
3/4 c milk
1/2 c butter, melted
1 TB grated orange peel (optional)
2 eggs
1 1/4 blueberries, fresh or frozen

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9X5X3 in. bread pan (bottom only). Combine the dry ingredients and add all but the blueberries to the bowl. Mix just until ingredients are combined, then add the blueberries, stirring very gently with a spoon. Empty the batter into the greased pan and bake for 55-65 minutes. When a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, the bread is done. Allow it to rest in the pan for 10 minutes, then on a wire rack to completely cool.

We Knead the Dough

I found myself wanting a place to store my recipes online where I can easily sort through them. I created this blog for that singular purpose. Where did I get the name? Several years ago I made some goodies for my boss at work. I wanted to put a professional touch on the box I presented them in, so I attached a pretty label printed from my computer that one might find on a bakery's marketing materials. It read,
