Oatmeal Honey Bread

Oatmeal Honey Bread | The Gray Boxwood

Homemade bread should not be a treat, only made for special occasions. Instead, with our bread recipe, I am declaring that you will become a pro at making bread for your family and friends. Adding my secret ingredient of one tablespoon of honey, this bread is simple and nearly foolproof. As a variation, I also make a loaf into a breakfast raisin cinnamon bread that is perfect for toast.

For the original recipe, click here.


  • 3/4 cup raisins (golden or regular)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (you can also use brown sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Flatten dough into a 10×12-inch rectangle and spread with raisins. Knead raisins into the dough to evenly distribute. Flatten the dough again to 10×12-inch rectangle and brush with softened butter, sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cinch seams. Place in loaf pan and let raise before baking.

Once you make this bread, you’ll wonder why you ever bought bread to begin with![hr]

  • What brand of bread pans do you use?
    P.S. I’ve been making this bread for about a year now. One of my family’s favorites!

  • I haven’t yet tried making this yummy-looking bread because I was unsure whether to bake it for 30-40 minutes, per the written recipe, or 20 minutes, per the video. Which baking time is correct? Thanks!
