This was a first for me. I've made quick breads many times before but they've always been sweet. This one was a quick bread that yielded a sandwich-type bread, which was the reason why it appealed to me.
Here are the ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups 2 percent milk
3 tablespoons oil
1-2 tablespoons quick cooking rolled oats
Now, I don't have whole wheat flour so I had to use 3 cups of all-purpose flour and I'm wondering if that made a big difference or not. Anyway, here's the ingredients all mixed together. It says you have to stir until moistened, so I think that qualifies.
Then, spread the dough in a greased 8-inch round cake pan. Again, I had to use a 9-inch cake pan since that's what I had.
Into a preheated 350-degree oven it goes and out comes a loaf. It doesn't look like the picture in the cookbook but it looks nice nonetheless.
The recipe suggests you serve it warm but I had to play taxi for an hour after this was made so I didn't eat it warm. I did take it out of the pan, though, and onto a cooling rack.
Once back home, I cut myself a pair of slices and made some a mini-pepperoni pizza grinder... sandwich... whatever. I baked it for about five minutes so the bread was warm but not quite sturdy. Still, it tasted good.
I also made myself this sandwich the following day, just put some deli meat with some provolone cheese and baby spinach. I also threw on some cilantro and jalapenos for some flavor.
The cookbook says this has 150 calories per slice but it was hard to determine how big a slice was so I just cut it up in fourths and approximated the calories. Although the bread was a bit crumbly, I think that's because I didn't use whole wheat flour. I'll make it properly the next time, and there will be a next time for this recipe.
