oaty enriched bread- featuring walnut bread too!

1.5 kg bag of plain white bread flour
allinson’s  yeast 16g
3 tsp salt
dessertspoon of sugar
125g ‘hot oat cereal’ straight from the pack
75g walnut pieces
put yeast and sugar into 300ml hand hot water and leave until it forms a nice fat frothy head.
Add this to the dry ingredients (Leaving the walnuts to one side)
add about 2 1/4 pts hand hot water, gradually til you get a  slippy dough.

Mix by hand.

put a quarter of the dough into 3 silicone loaf pans, ie a quarter in each.

Then add the walnuts to the final quarter and mix again. Put this into your 4th loaf pan.

Leave in a warm place to rise for 40 ish mins til dough peeks above the top of the tin.

Bake for 25 mins on gas mark 6, or until browned on top and sounds hollow when tapped with a knuckle.

the walnut bread is too lovely, I can’t feature it, they’ll eat it all on day 1 🙂



  1. Values for 15 slices/loaf, not using the walnuts (sorry, too complicated to compute just for 1 loaf!)

    Best approximation of ReadyBreak is instant oatmeal, am I right?! (I’ve never had ReadyBrek before!!)

  2. My ancient oven requires that I put all the tins on one shelf so I can only bake 3 loaves side by side. So they come out bigger and take a bit longer to cook. I’ve never had readybrek (or cheapo equivalent) but I’ve tried putting a handful of porridge oats into the bread and that made a lovely moist loaf. The loaf seemed to keep better too. I love the thought of walnuts – mouth is watering – so I’m going to try that soon. Thank you!
