Light Oat Bread

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Never skip your breakfast as it keeps you energized throughout your day. This morning, we had a couple slices of oat bread, spreaded with butter, strawberry and coconut jam.

For the dough
1/4 warm water
1 tsp active dry yeast
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cups oats
1/4 cups raisins
1 tbsp margarine
1 egg
1/2 cups water (add accordingly)

1. Dissolve yeast, sugar into 1/4 warm water and proof for 3 minutes
2. Mix all the dried ingredients, add in the dissolved yeast mixture, together with the egg and margarine, then knead.
3. Let rise in oiled bowl until doubled in size, about an hour
4. Punch down and form into loaves and let rise about 30 minutes in the loaf pans
5. Bake for 20 minutes at 200c.
