During our Countdown to 2011, I found a great recipe from Jackie for "the best ever muffins".
I decided to give them a try, since I do love oats!
This bread is quite delicious, sweet, but not overly sweet -- pairs nicely with tea! I bet that's why it's called "tea bread"!
Oatmeal Tea Bread - Adapted from Loving My Domestic Life
1/4 C milk
2 T olive oil
1 1/4 C applesauce
1 C oats
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 C brown sugar
1/8 C sugar
1/2 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C all purpose flour
1 T brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 T oats
Begin by mixing the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
This includes the sugars, baking soda, salt, oats and spices.
Then, stir in the flour.
In a second bowl, combine the olive oil, applesauce, egg and milk. Mix well.
Combine the applesauce mixture together with the flour mixture.
Stir until just moist.
Spread into a lightly greased bread loaf pan.
Combine the 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 T brown sugar and 1 T oats together in a small container and then sprinkle this topping over the bread.
Bake at 350 for 45minutes to an 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the loaf. Alternatively, you can make muffins -- baking for ~15-18 minutes, or until done.
Cool on a wire cooling wrack.
Then, slice and serve.
