This is a beautifully flavored bread to make when you have an embarrassment of apples! The scent of this cinnamony-apple bread baking in the oven is aromatherapy at it’s very best! Enjoy thick slices, toasted and buttered, with a mug of tea. MMMMM!

to make bread:

Sprinkle 1 package active dry yeast over 1/4 cup (115 degree) water.

Stir to dissolve.

Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine:

1/2 cup sugar

3 teaspoons salt

1/3 cup butter.

Pour 1 and 1/2 cups scalded milk over.

Stir until butter is melted. Cool to lukewarm.

Add 1 and 1/2 cups of rolled oats to yeast mixture.

Stir in 1 cup bread flour and 2 beaten eggs.

Pour egg mixture  into softened yeast-oat mixture.

Stir in enough additional flour to make a soft dough.

(about 5 cups.)

Turn out onto a lightly floured board.

Knead until satiny (10 minutes.)

Round dough into ball.

Place in a buttered bowl.

rub a little butter on top of dough too.

Cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit in a warm place to rise for 1 hour.

(until doubled in size.)

Punch down. Rest 10 minutes.

Roll half of the dough into a 15″ X 8″ rectangle on floured board.

Brush with 2 Tablespoons melted butter

3 Tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup chopped apples

Roll up (as you would for a jelly roll.)

Place in buttered bread pan

Repeat with other half of the dough.

Cover with buttered plastic wrap and allow to rise, in a warm place for 50 minutes.

(until nearly doubled in size)

Bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes.

Until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped.

Remove from pans. Brush tops with butter. Cool.

Enjoy!
