September Foodstuff - Orange and Oatmeal Breakfast Breads

It's funny, I always made sure that the kids ate breakfast every morning but never made sure I did, shame on me! What makes it even worse, I so enjoy breakfast breads. One would think I should follow my own rule and at least have a slice of bread with my morning coffee right? Last week I decided to try out some new breakfast bread recipes hoping that I would maybe start my day with a cup and a slice...

Country Oatmeal Bread
Taken from Betty Crocker's Breads ©1974 (a gift from mom) adapted for a bread machine

1 cup hot water
1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats or quick rolled oats
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp salt
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg
2 3/4 cups bread flour
2 tsp active dry yeast

Add hot water, stir in oats. Add remaining ingredients in the order given. Set machine to basic.

The bread turned out to be a wonderful texture and color. As for the oatmeal flavor, it was just a hint; not what I expected. Next time I will increase the oatmeal by at least 1/4 cup. Even though it didn't have the oatmeal flavor I expected, all was not lost. Turns out this bread is awesome for making french toast. I sliced it rather thick, more than 1/2", and allowed it to soak in the egg mixture for a minute or so. Makes great french toast sticks too.

This week I made cinnamon orange bread. After doing some searching online and conferring with my bread machine recipe book and two other bread books, I came up with my own recipe. Red named this one...

Cinnamon Sunshine Bread

* 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice( 5-6 medium oranges)
* 1/2 cup water
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 4 tablespoons honey
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1 egg, beaten well
* zest 1 medium size orange
* 4 cups bread flour
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Add ingredients to bread pan in the order given for your bread machine. I selected the rapid bread setting and set the crust to light. What a savory bread; slightly sweet, perfectly moist, with a rich orange flavor. I warmed and buttered a few slices for Red and I this afternoon. It was at that moment Red came up with the name!
