Sweet Oatmeal Bread

So far this has been a favorite, it was a very nice bread overall. We enjoy adding a lot of flax and wheat germ and other randomness (seeds, nuts, etc) to our breads, and I don't have any specific measurements for those, just add as you like.

Sweet Oatmeal Bread
(1.5lb loaf)

1/2C old-fashioned rolled oats
3/4-7/8C water
2T molasses
1T sugar
1t salt
2C bread flour
1 1/2t active dry yeast

Place all ingredients in bread pan, using the least amount of liquid listed in the recipe. Select LIGHT CRUST setting
Press Start

Observe the dough as it kneads. After 5 to 10 minutes, if it appears dry and stiff or if your machine sounds as if it's straining to knead it, add more liquid 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough forms a smooth, soft, pliable ball that is slightly tacky to the touch.

***I used delayed timer on this, and the min amount of water, and it turned out fine. I also liked the light crust a lot, it was a good change from the med crusts I have been doing***
