Oatmeal Batter Bread

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


Batter breads are much easier than regular yeast breads because you don't have to knead them. This hearty loaf is ready in under two hours, most of that rising time.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Yield: Makes one loaf


  • 2 to 2-1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 pkg. dry yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg


Grease an 8x4" loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, oats, salt and yeast and mix well. In a small saucepan, heat water, honey and butter until very warm, about 120 degrees. Add to flour mixture along with egg, and beat for three minutes. Stir in additional 1 to 1-1/2 cups flour to make a stiff batter. Cover batter and let rise until light, about 25-30 minutes.

Stir down batter and place in prepared pan. Cover and let rise until batter reaches top of pan, about 15-20 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake bread for 35-40 minutes until loaf sounds hollow when lightly tapped. Remove from pan immediately and place on wire rack to cool.

Oatmeal Batter Bread, Guest catrustycat

This is great. I used 1/4 Cup vanilla yogurt and steel cut oatmeal. Hope to make it again soon.
