Braided Oats Bread




It’s been so long since I baked bread. The last time I tried was an year and a half back , I tried to make a French loaf and needless to say it was a disaster..
Now with the new member in my Kitchen- KitchenAid, I decided to try my hands on bread baking again[Yes yes, I got one last week…yeyyyyyyy can’t stop smiling]
I decided to go with the simple and easy Oats bread recipe which I had bookmarked sometime back
Here is the original recipe from Palatable

The recipe is super simple and the bread was really soft and tasted great..

So here goes the Braided bread
Recipe courtesy : Palatable

2 Cups Bread flour +2 table spoons
1 ½ tspn Active yeast
1/ 2 Cup rolled oats
1 tablespon ground flaxseed
2 Tablespoon butter
2 tablespoon sugar
150 ml milk
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoon water

Mix the yeast, 3 tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon sugar in a small bowl. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes

Mix the butter, sugar and milk in a bowl and microwave it for 10-20 seconds till it is just warm.

In the mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Attach the dough hook and give a mix.
Now slowly add the yeast mixture and mix at speed 2.
Continue to mix and add the milk mixture.
Knead for 5 minutes till the dough is soft.

Alternatively you can mix all ingredients and knead well with hands till dough is no longer sticking to your hands.

Cover and let it rise for 30-40 minutes till the dough rise to twice the original size
Punch down the dough and give it a quick knead

For making braided bread, take out 3 equal portions of dough, 150 gms each
Now roll the balls into a long tube shape about 5-6 inch and braid it. There are plenty of videos in you tube showing how to braid the bread.
Rest of the dough you can make buns or rolls as per you creativity.
I chose to make Kaya buns and Nutella rolls.

Cover the shaped dough using a damp cloth and let it rest for 30-40 minutes.

Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes till the top is browed lightly.
