Maple Oatmeal Bread
Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Knead on a floured board for 8-10 min. or with an electric mixer and dough hook for 4-5 min. Place in a greased bowl, cover with lightly greased plastic wrap and allow to rise 45 min. If time allows, punch down and let rise again for 30-45 min. Form into 3 loaves. Place in lightly greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pans. Cover the pans loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap. Let rise about 45 min.- 1 hr. or until the loaves crown 1-1½" above the rim of the pan. Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for about 35 minutes. Makes 3 loaves.
*Honey or brown sugar may be substituted for the maple syrup.
Wonderfully sweet and tender dinner rolls that are always fresh and hot from the oven.
In a large mixing bowl thoroughly mix 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and undissolved yeast. Combine milk, water and butter in a saucepan. Heat over low heat until liquids are very warm (120° to 130°F.). Butter does not need to melt. Gradually add to dry ingredients and mix two minutes at medium speed of electric mixer (use paddle), scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 3/4 cup of flour. Mix at high speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in the remaining flour to make a stiff dough (now use dough hook, knead about 5 min.). (OR Turn out on lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.) Place on floured surface. Cover with plastic wrap, then a towel. Let rest for 20 minutes.
Punch dough down; divide into three equal pieces. Divide each piece of dough into 9 equal pieces. Place 9 in greased 9"x 9" pan and 18 in 9"x 13" pan. OR Divide each roll piece into 3 balls; place in greased muffin tins. Brush rolls with oil or butter. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.
When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator. Uncover rolls carefully. Let stand 10 minutes. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until done. Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks. If desired, brush with melted butter or margarine. Serve warm.
A favorite Sunday treat, especially slathered with butter.
