Oatmeal Quick Bread

Posted on

This is a good not-to-sweet quick bread that’s

just the thing to serve with afternoon tea.

It reminds me of a scone.

It’s nice buttered with a drizzle of honey

and cinnamon,

or buttered with cinnamon sugar, or jam.

It’s also good toasted the next day.

Begin by soaking the 1 C oats with 1 C milk

for 5 minutes while you get the other

ingredients together and grease a 9×5 pan.

Whisk in the eggs, butter, and brown sugar.

Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt

just until blended.

Spoon batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle the

top with the 1 T reserved dry oats.

Bake @ 350º for about 50-55 minutes, until a

toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Remove from pan.
