Oatmeal Honey Bread

This is a little different from my usual oatmeal bread, with the yogurt.  I changed the directions to use instant or rapid-rise yeast.  Check out our mixer bread information HERE.  Remember, you can also make this recipe by hand too, the way I did for years.
Luckily, I had a 7 ½” loaf pan because I use it for my husband’s favorite lemon nut quick bread.   This is a nice sandwich-style loaf and it also makes excellent toast.                   
Oatmeal Honey Bread
  2 1/3   Cups  Flour, All-purpose
  1          Cup  Quick Cooking Oats
  1          Package  Instant Yeast
  1          Teaspoon  Sugar
  1          Teaspoon  Salt
     1/4   Teaspoon  Baking Soda
  3          Tablespoons  Honey
  1          Cup  Plain Nonfat Yogurt
     1/2   Cup  Water -- 120°-125°
  1          Tablespoon  Honey -- For top of loaf
Combine flour, oats, salt, baking soda, yeast and sugar in mixer bowl.
Heat yogurt and water to 120-125°.  Add 3 tbsp. of honey.  Add to flour mixture gradually while beating on low speed with a paddle attachment for 2 minutes..
Change to dough hook and knead 4 minutes or until elastic.
Cover and let rest in a warm place 10 minutes. 
Punch down and turn out on lightly floured surface.  Knead lightly 4 or 5 times.  Roll into a 12 x 5" rectangle.  Roll up dough, starting on short side and shape into a loaf; pinch ends.
Preheat oven to 400°.  Place in greased 7 1/2 x 3" loaf pan.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until 1" above the pan (about 25 minutes).  Bake at 400° for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350° and bake 20 minutes.  (An instant read thermometer should read 195-200° when inserted into the end of the loaf.) Remove from pan immediately and brush with 1 tablespoon honey.   Cool on a wire rack.
You can bake this in a 8 x 4" pan, it will make a flatter loaf and bake in a little shorter time.
