Cranberry-Walnut Oat Bread

Oat bread

Baking with yeast makes my knees shake a little. For me, it is always hit or miss. I’m working on it. I WILL NOT LET YEAST DEFEAT ME.

Regardless of my ongoing battle with the stuff, when Red Star Yeast contacted me about their new product, Red Star Yeast Platinum Superior Baking Yeast–a yeast they call “forgiving” and “simple to use” I was alllll about it. They promised it would give me “professional results EVERY time.” And let me tell you–this bread tastes like something out of one of your favorite bakeries. They added dough improvers to make your bread turn out even more perfectly. They recommend it especially for whole grain dough which is fantastic because I prefer to make whole-grain breads any time possible. There is also helpful information on their website about how to use the yeast and lots of great recipes to get you started!

Let’s just say I’m sold.

Want to win some of your own to try? You could win this pretty little package with yeast, coupons, a nice wooden cutting board and a fun apron! Read on for more details.

Cranberry-Walnut Oat Bread

Yield: 1 loaf

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 and 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Yeast Platinum Superior Baking Yeast
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine Platinum yeast, one cup flour, oats, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a large measuring cup (or small bowl), combine water, oil and syrup. Heat to 120-130 degrees F (I did this in the microwave!).
  3. Add liquid ingredients to the dry mixture in the mixing bowl. Using paddle attachment, beat on medium speed for 4 minutes.
  4. Gradually add in the remaining flour and knead with dough hook 5-7 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Add in the walnuts and cranberries and knead gently by hand until combined.
  5. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turned to grease the entire dough ball. Cover and let rise until dough tests ripe. (Read here to learn what that means if you don't know.)
  6. Place dough on lightly floured surface and punch down to remove air bubbles. Form into a (approximately) 14 x 7-inch rectangle. Starting with the short side, roll up tightly to form a roll. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place in a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Cover with a clean towel and let rise until indentation remains after touching.
  7. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unless your dough is rising in the oven. Then wait.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-40 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool before slicing.

Oh…and that goodness that is spread on the bread? We’ll talk about that next week. Don’t miss it though–it’s perfect on this bread.

Verdict: Best bread I’ve ever made. Seriously! Tasted amazing toasted, it really brings out the flavor of the walnuts.
Husband’s take: Not the biggest fan of dried cranberries but he loved this bread and ate it every day until it was gone!
Changes I would make: None!
Difficulty: If I can do it, you can do it.

    The first thing I would make is the english muffin bread over on the Eat, Love, Run blog! It’s actually kind of sad how many bread and baked donut recipes I have bookmarked, because I’ve never attempted any of them. You could say I’m scared. But given the right ingredients, of course I’ll give them a shot! :)

But I must say, yeast that makes it easier to be successful, um yea I’m all for that! Your bread looks amazing and it is right up my flavor alley so it will be on its way into my oven soon!

    If only I had that Red Star Platinum yeast right now, this would be the first thing I made (although I’m thinking that old whole wheat recipe that tasted so good but was *very* heavy will be an excellent use of it). TTFN–I’m on my way out the door to buy dried cranberries. A couple of slices of this bread and a pot of tea sound perfect for a grey, rainy day!

    I snagged several packets of that yeast when I entered the fair this year (they always offer free Red Star yeast to those entering the baking competitions) and have used it a couple times and I love it too! But I still haven’t located it in stores. I hope we get it soon b/c I’m sold on it. Speaking of which, I’m totally sold on this bread! So pretty! I bet chicken salad sandwiches would be amazing on this too.

  495. Laura Dembowski — October 30, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    I love baking with yeast and making bread. It looks like yours turned out perfectly. Cranberry pecan bread is one of my favorites, but I bet it’s great with walnuts, and oats sound like such a nice addition.

    Rachel, what would be the best way to wrap, package, give as a gift? plastic or paper bag for the bread and I love the sealed containers for the butter, but I’m looking for something a lil cheaper…. I’m making about 8 loaves as gifts, any ideas or help is greatly appreciated! Thanks for an awesome recipe, Merry Christmas.

      I would let the bread cool completely and then wrap in plastic, unless it is going to be given/consumed the same day, then go for paper. Or do paper and tell them to put it in a plastic bag if they aren’t planning on eating it the same day. I’d say the cheapest thing for the butter would be to make little logs of it in parchment or wax paper, roll it up and tie the ends with some cute ribbon, and then chill it well. So fun that you’re using this for gift giving! Hope everyone loves it! Merry Christmas!

    This bread came out GREAT! Thanks for recipe. Husband said it tasted like his favorite Whole Foods Bread. I’m a bread-baking star today at my house :-)

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that this has become a staple in our house…I was looking for a bread with oats and walnuts and happened upon this page somehow–I make this probably every two weeks now! Thanks so much!

    I just saw this on the platinum red star yeast site-looks very very good and I plan on making it asap. I just bought some of that yeast.
    AND I see a lot of people commented on it – mostly saying they are following you- not sure they actually baked it. Or they are looking for free give aways?
    BUT I have to say that recipe is badly written.
    Sorry.
    its just so hard to follow.
    The ingredients are not in order of how they are used so you have to keep looking back and forth to follow it. Then double check to make sure you have not missed anything. Sorry to be a crab, but I have edited some cookbooks and this recipe looks like a winner.

      You’re right! :) It was in my earlier days of recipe developing and I’ve learned a lot since then. Just haven’t had a chance to make it through all my recipes to edit. I’ll edit this one right now though! :)
