  • 4-5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oat
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cream-style cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup margarine

  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Directions

  • In large bowl, combine 2 cups all purpose flour, salt and yeast; blend well.
  • In medium saucepan, heat water, Sue Bee® honey, margarine and cottage cheese until very warm.
  • Margarine does not need to melt completely.
  • Add warm liquid and eggs to flour mixture.
  • Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
  • By hand, stir in whole wheat flour, oats, nuts and enough all purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • On floured surface, knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
  • Place in greased bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel.
  • Let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Generously grease two 8×4 or 9×5-inch loaf pans.
  • Punch down dough.
  • Divide dough into 2 parts; shape into loaves.
  • Place in greased pans.
  • Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 375 F.
  • Uncover dough.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when lightly tapped.
  • Immediately remove from pans; cool on wire racks.
  • For softer crusts, brush tops of loaves with melted margarine, if desired.
