Dear Uncle Phaedrus,
Thank you for the years of pleasure your website has brought to me, both intellectually
and fine recipes.
Almost 50 years ago, I bought a copy of Apartment Living magazine and it had some lovely
bread recipes. The one I made often was a rather rustic oatmeal bread. I cannot begin
to expect that you would be able to locate this recipe, but I shall hope.
The bread contained oatmeal (not oat flour) and honey. The rest of the ingredients were
the usual things one would expect in a bread recipe, flour, yeast, water, salt. It was
truly delicious, not sweet. I have made other oatmeal breads, none ever matching the
taste of the Apartment Living recipe.
Stay healthy and I hope your holiday season is filled with comfort and joy.
Thank you for the kind words about my site.
I had no success locating your recipe request. I don't know why, but "Apartment Living Magazine"
recipes are extremely scarce on the Web.
There are plenty of other oatmeal bread recipes with honey on the web that you can find if
you copy and paste this as a Google search term:
"oatmeal bread" oatmeal honey flour salt yeast water
Just like that, with quotes around "oatmeal bread". I looked at many of the recipes that
Google found. Most have the ingredients that you list, but none mentions "Apartment Living."
I will, of course, post this for input from my readers. Perhaps one of them has the Apartment
Living recipe. If someone sends it to me, I will send it on to you and will also post it.
Stay safe and enjoy the holidays.
