Doodle Bread

Doodle Bread will be sure to make a baker out of the most reluctant of young kitchen helpers...

Step-by-Step Instructions

In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, oats, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, honey, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 16 equal pieces. Form into desired shapes* such as letters, numbers, or Xs and Os that can be used as Tic-Tac-Toe game pieces. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

If desired, brush doodles with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over tops.

To make a variety of doodle shapes, roll dough pieces to 16-inch ropes and use to form small shapes.

Bake at 375 F for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
