Brown Bread

When a bread basket is presented, I almost always go for the brown bread. It's a lightly sweetened, chewy and delicious bread. Since my breadmaker has come into the picture, I decided I needed to make my own, after reading through many different recipes I have created a version that I think is top notch.

1 cup + 1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup molasses
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick oats + more to sprinkle on top of bread before baking, if desired
3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast


  1. Add ingredients to bread machine in order above
  2. Set machine to dough cycle
  3. After completion of the dough cycle, remove from machine, shape into a boule and cover loosely with lightly oiled plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes
  4. Pre-heat oven to 350° 
  5. Sprinkle some more oats on top of bread (if desired) and bake for 40 minutes
