Twenty-four loaves of honey oatmeal ready to go out the door for the Vendors' Fair, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Spring Valley IL. It's being held in the Community Center, and the proceeds from the vendors' fees are going to the local Food Pantry. I only have about forty loaves of bread total, so come early! I'm willing to take a few orders for the week of Thanksgiving, too, since I'll be baking anyway and it's just as easy to make twelve loaves as two, when you've got a big enough mixer! I've been experimenting with using the convection blower on our ovens. I usually don't, but with large batches that fill the oven, the outermost loaves get slightly overdone on the sides. With the blower on, the air circulates more evenly, but you have to adjust the temperature and baking times. Did pretty well on this batch, since all of the loaves are uniformly browned. This is my #1 requested recipe, so you can find it here.
This would make a great photo greeting card, but I'm afraid it would make the recipient really hungry!
