Hearty Oat Loaf

My parents get to see a lot of pictures of our food. My mom does some proof reading for me. However, much to their disappointment, they don't get to do any taste testing.  They live close, but not that close.  Since they are always wanting to sample, when they call to say they are coming over, I try to make sure I have something on hand.

For their last trip over, I didn't have anything. Nothing. Zilch. Nada.  I don't think well under pressure, so a cookbook was useless. I needed photo's. Pinterest... Save me! Yup, good old Pinterest. I had this recipe pinned. It came together so quick, and it was a lovely moist quick bread. This bread is definitely best the day that you make it!

Hearty Oat Loaf  (Source: Delightful Country Cookin')

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp oats, divided
1/4 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/2  cup milk (I use 2%)
3 Tbsp vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9 inch round baking dish with non-stick spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine all-purpose flour, wheat flour, 1/2 cup oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  In another bowl, combine egg, milk, and oil.  Add egg mixture to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.  Spread batter into baking pan.  Sprinkle batter with remaining 2 Tablespoons oats.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.  Serve warm.

For best quality, enjoy same day!
