“Simple bread recipe from the Food Network website / Emeril Live. Needs to sit for 12 hours before baking.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mini-food processor, pulse the oatmeal until the meal is very fine. Turn into a mixing bowl. Stir the buttermilk into the oats and cover with plastic wrap.
  2. Let the oatmeal steep in the buttermilk for 12 hours (recipe doesn't state, but I refrigerate!).
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with the butter.
  4. In a mixing bowl, sift the other ingredients together.
  5. Stir in the steeped oatmeal and mix well. If the mixture is too wet add a little more flour.
  6. Lightly dust the work surface with some flour. Turn the dough out onto the surface and knead the dough a couple of times to form a soft ball like shape.
  7. Press the dough into a round about 2 inches thick.
  8. Using a sharp knife, make a criss-cross cut into the bread.
  9. Place the bread in the prepared pan. Bake until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  11. Serve the bread warm with butter.
