Wendesday's Chow - Hearty Oat Loaf

This week's recipe comes from guest blogger Paty Jager. She's sent in a yummy bread recipe, great to bake on these coming cold days!

Since my husband has to watch his cholesterol and I try to stay true to the Eat Right For Your Blood Type diet I changed up the flour. And my mother-in-law whose Dutch, LOVES this bread. She said it tastes like bread in Holland.

Hearty Oat Loaf

2 C all purpose flour (I use spelt)
1 C whole wheat ( I use oat)
1/2 C plus 2 TBSP quick cooking oats
1/4 C sugar
3 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/2 C fat-free milk (I use 2%)
3 TBSP canola oil

In a large bowl combine the flours, 1/2 cup oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl combine the egg, milk, and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spread batter into an 8 or 9 in. round baking pan coated with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining oats.

Bake at 350degrees for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.

I slice it thin and toast it for breakfast too. Yummy!

I don't know how Gluten Free flour works in recipes, but if you're familar with it you would know better than I how to exchange it.
