Honey Oatmeal Bread: Bread of the Week 2

This week I made honey oatmeal bread. The recipe was in the Kitchen Aid book that came with my mixer. It was easy to make and looked beautiful.

Looks are great, but when it comes down to it I want bread to taste good too. This bread was delicious. It was even better than the challah. It was perfect toasted with a bit of jam. This may be my new sandwich bread. I won't be able to go back to grocery store bread after this.

looks good! I have the same cookbook (and mixer) so I should look it up. My question is this... do you have a good way to slice the bread for sandwiches? Electric knife? I have a good serrated but am so bad at cutting a level slice. Any tips?

I am still working on getting a good even slice. I use a serrated knife, and I try to slice the bread thinner than I think I want it. I tend to cut really thick slices, which seem to be easer to cut unevenly. Thinner slices just come out better.

If you find a good way to slice it let me know.

that sounds & looks delicious! I wonder if that recipe came with my mixer (and if I kept the book!!)
