"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

I. 6 cups lukewarm water
2 T. yeast (2 packages)
1/2 - 3/4 c. honey
2 c. dry milk
4 c. unbleached white flour
4 c. whole wheat flour
II. 2 1/2 T. salt
1/2 - 1 c. oil (or butter/margerine)
5 c. rolled oats
2 c. whole wheat flour
2 c. unbleached white flour

Dissolve yeast in water. Stir in honey and dry milk. Stir in flour until thick batter is formed. Beat with wooden spoon - about 100 strokes.
Let rise 60 minutes. Fold in salt and oil. Fold in the rolled oats and additional flours until dough comes away from sides of the bowl.
Knead on floured board until smooth. Let rise 50 minutes. Punch down well (about 30 punches.)
Let rise 40 minutes. Shape into 4 loaves (or 3 loaves and 4 mini loaves.) Let rise 20 minutes in pans.
Make slits with sharp knife on the top of the loaves. Make an egg wash with egg and water and brush loaves with wash. (this is optional).
Bake at 350 for one hour. Remove from pans and cool.

Personal Notes:
I make this bread quite often. Probably every two weeks. Yum! One loaf I divide into 4 mini loaves. It makes a good birthday treat or something to bring to a friend's dinner.
