Maple Oat Bread

Maple Oat Bread


I had been taking a little break from maple but then I came across this recipe for a maple oat bread that I just had to try. This bread is baked with maple syrup in it and maple sugar is sprinkle on top. The maple-y goodness does not stop there though as I had a jar of maple butter that I was just itching to try. In addition to using the rolled oats this recipe also includes some whole wheat flour which I always like to see. This is a yeast based bread so it takes a bit more effort than the quick breads that I more usually make but it is well worth it. The smell of the maple bread baking was just amazing and only built up the anticipation even more. I could barely wait for the bread to cool down enough to cut of a slice to enjoy. The maple bread was great! It had a nice crisp crust with a light and soft inside and the smelled just like maple syrup. The maple flavour however was more subtle and I really enjoyed it. The maple butter that I served with the bread with added a ton of maple flavour as well. The maple butter tasted just like maple syrup but it had the texture of butter. I will definitely be making this bread again.

I love bread with oats, they just add such an incredibly crispy texture, while keeping the bread moist. So great! I'm a sweet-tooth all the way, so sweet breads are the way to go for me.
Thanks for this great recipe :)

It's all your fault, you know! :-) After seeing your maple based recipes, I purchased a bottle of the golden elixir just yesterday. My son and husband LOVED it. Your bread recipe looks wonderful. Another great recipe from your kitchen!

Looks wonderful - fresh baked bread is one of the most comforting aroma.

Jamie said...

Really wonderful! I love making yeast breads and the maple flavor sounds intriguing paired with the nuttiness of the flour. Beautiful! I'll have to try this - but wonder where I can find maple butter to go with it? It looks too good!

Bridgett said...

So Yummy!

lisa (dandysugar) said...

Fabulous looking bread, I say! The maple butter looks luscious as well!

Judy said...

Maple is a great flavoring, and oats always make any batter lighter. A winning combination.

zerrin said...

Looks fantastic! I don't know about maple but I'm sure it would be so nice for breakfast.

Deborah said...

don't take a break from maple! This looks fantastic.

cathycicek82 said...

wow, it looks delicious. I plan on trying it for Sunday's brunch, and I was wondering if it would be okay to start it the night before (let it rise through all night the 1st time)? Thanks.

Jeanne said...

That sounds like a concept - the aroma and flavour of maple syrup, and the health benefits of oats and wholewheat flour! Bonus.

Kevin said...

cathycicek82: I have not tried that. It might be better to let it do the second rising in the fridge overnight. Then let it come to room temperature before baking.

Ana said...

Looks delicious; I was always so scared to bake bread but now I'm doing it almost every day. I feel you on the tiny kitchen. ;)I stumbled this
