  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons bacon grease
  • 1/2 cup coarse oat flour
  • 3 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast



  1. Mix milk, water, honey & bacon grease & warm gently in microwave or allow to reach room temperature before continuing. Then pour into the bread pan.

  2. In separate bowl mix oat flour, all-purpose flour and salt.
  3. Pour flour mixture into bread-machine pan on top of wet ingredients.

  4. Make a shallow well in flour and add yeast. (it's said the yeast should not touch the wet ingredients or salt until it's mixed in by the machine)

  5. Choose your settings - choose a 2 lb loaf and then choose light, medium or dark crust.

    My machine defaults to the last setting used, so typically all I need to do is press "START"

Recipe Notes

NOTE: SOLAR OVEN BAKING OPTION - I often use a bread machine dough cycle to make the dough and complete the initial rise. Then I can use my my Sun Oven solar oven to actually bake the bread.

After the first rise in the bread machine I'll remove from the machine, knead the dough & divide the dough in two. Each half is rolled into a flat rectangle and rolled into a log, pinching the ends to seal.

Then I'll place the dough logs into greased loaf pans, turning to coat with oil. I allow the bread to rise until doubled in bulk (about 45 minutes), then place the loaf pans into my pre-heated solar oven. Depending upon sun intensity, cloud cover, my adjusting the oven to track the sun more closely, etc. the bread bakes outside in my solar oven in about 1 to 1.5 hours. (King Arthur site says internal temp should be 190 degrees F. if you want to use an instant-read thermometer to be sure)

The bread will be lightly golden-brown.
