Honey Oat Sourdough Bread–single loaf recipe THM-E

Honey Oat Sourdough Bread is a favorite in our family and the most popular post on my blog. The previous recipe for 5 loaves was made with our large family in mind. I have downsized the recipe for just one loaf of bread which is easily mixed in a Kitchen Aid Mixer or Bread Machine. It doesn’t work to use a Bread Machine mix/bake cycle because of the fermenting time. This recipe will make a 1 1/2 pound loaf with all the tasty goodness of the previous recipe.

Honey Oat Sourdough Bread

In mixer bowl combine starter, water, oil, honey, dough enhancer, lecithin, oat flour, and 1 cup white whole wheat flour. Mix until well combined. Add remaining flour in 1/4 cup increments until dough begins to pulls away from the sides of the bowl but is still slightly tacky. Allow your dough rest for 20 minutes. Add salt.  Knead for 5-7 minutes or until the dough window panes. Lightly grease a bowl with a lid. Place dough into a greased bowl turning it to coat with oil. Cover with a lid and allow dough to proof for 5-6 hours. Shape into a loaf and place into well greased bread pan. Cover the bread pan with greased plastic wrap. Allow to rise for 1-2 hours or until 3/4 proofed. Wet the blade of a sharp knife and slash across the top of the loaf. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 350 degrees F. for 27-30 minutes. Cool. 1 loaf 12-14 slices.

This is a THM-E fuel category–there is a small amount of oil in the bread but will only be about 1/12th of a teaspoon per slice. The small amount of honey will be eaten up by the fermenting.

Here are a few pictures with the step by step process.

I knead the bread dough until it window panes or when you stretch a walnut size piece that you can see light through it and it doesn’t tear. 

Dough has been kneaded and is ready to  be placed in a bowl to ferment/proof. This is in a 6 quart Kitchen Aid Mixer Bowl.

Dough ready to proof for 5-6 hours.

Dough doubled in size and ready to shape into a loaf.

If you don’t have a mixer and are considering one–this is my favorite for making 1-2 loaves of bread. I have my Kitchen Aid for 25 years and it is still going strong. I do prefer my Bosch for kneading dough and I usually make 5 loaves with it.
