White Wheat Oat Quick Bread

If you have not already, please take a moment and leave a comment on my Giveaway Post **. I’ll wait here…go! 

How was your weekend?  Mine was very nice!  We went to a house blessing and saw some lovely friends and……We had rain!  Can I get a WOOT?!  It was lovely to hear the rain beating down upon the roof.  We’ve been rain free for so long.

Rain makes me want to bake.  Heh! Who am I kidding, any weather makes me want to bake.  I’m just using the rain as a convenient excuse.  😀

One of the Gold Medal recipe cards that I received with the myblogspark package, was for a quick bread.

Fruit and Oats, lovely!

Here is the ingredient list.

  • 1 cup 5-grain rolled whole-grain cereal or old-fashioned oats  *I used old-fashioned oats
  • 3 cups Gold Medal® white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into small pieces *I used butter
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, cherries or raisins  *I used 1 cup of dried fruit, half cranberries and half raisins.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Gather your ingredients and follow this link to the recipe.

This bread is wonderful.  Not too sweet.  It is moist and lovely.

  1. this looks like a really great recipe! Glad you had some rain over the weekend 🙂

    • Thank you Tandy! I was so happy hear the rain start! 🙂

  2. Ooo, I love quick breads, and an oat-ful one sounds delish! And there’s a rainy day here, too–definitely not used to this cloudy and damp business! I want warm soup and hot oat bread. Oh, wait–I’m at work, that might limit my baking 😀

    • Heh! Silly work schedule, interfering with your leisure baking and soup making time.

      • I know! Just think of everything I’d get done if I didn’t have this “job” business to deal with…

      • it’s just another instance of “the job man” holding you back Allie. 😀

  3. Yay – rain! What a lovely recipe for a fruit loaf, haven´t made one of these for ages. And oats too…yum!

    • 🙂 I was thrilled to have rain! Your vacation pictures are lovely!!

  4. Looks like you’re putting that flour to good use! We got rain too, but didn’t need it as much as you.

    • I totally am Greg! 🙂 I’m having fun experimenting with the flour. I’m glad to hear that you guys got rain in AR too! We had hail last night!

  5. Rainy days definitely make me want to bake…but like you too any day will do! I really like this bread recipe, lots of good wholesome ingredients!!

    • It tastes really great!

  6. So glad to hear you had a great weekend. I can’t wait until we get rain in CA, but sadly, I think it’s going to be a while. At least it’s cooling down a little! This bread sounds fabulous. 🙂

    • Thank you Caroline! The cooler weather is wonderful! The bread is very tasty!

  7. Wow, looks almost like a sourdough bread. I love Gold Medal’s “Bread Flour” I haven’t actually tried their “White Wheat” yet. Sounds like a plan.

    God Bless You
