I was in a serious bread mood over the weekend, and intentionally didn’t buy any. Too many carbs or sweets in my apartment don’t last long…like not even to the end of the weekend. I had bought some Daiya chive and onion cream cheese for another recipe but it kept laughing in my face when I opened the fridge door. On to baking some bread…and what a mishap! Here is the Savory Oat Bread That Didn’t Rise!
I have to give myself props…boy, can I season some bread! This bread turned out so freaking good! I may not have gotten it to rise like a normal loaf, since that is what I was going for, but the spices and herbs I added…oh wow. It was surely a good bread!
This bread was meant to rise like a banana bread, which is basically the recipe that I used to try to make rising bread. No, I didn’t use yeast – I hadn’t meant this to be such a hard recipe to have turn out. I mean, I am used to dense and a lower rising product, since I have yet to make a light and fluffy vegan or gluten free cookie or cake. But sheesh! No rise at all?
For this amazingly flavored bread, get your flax egg made with two tablespoons flax seed and six of water. I microwave mine for 30 seconds then pop in the freezer to cool while I get everything else ready. Pour dry ingredients into small bowl and mix well. In medium bowl add milk, oil and flax egg. Mix all well. Spray Pam in baking pan then pour in batter. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
Next time if I follow this recipe exactly I will spread on a cookie sheet for more bread. But I will try with more baking powder and will add baking soda also. The chive and onion cream cheese was an awesome topping with this savory bread!
