How to Make Vodka Watermelon - Everything You Need to Know Guide!

I wanted to make a vodka watermelon. Some people call it infuse a watermelon. Some people charge a watermelon. Whatever you it call it, it is the same thing. A 21 years and older watermelon filled with booze with a 50-50 chance of either coming out perfect or not infusing at all. I’m not trying to scare you out of a spiked vodka watermelon recipe. I’m letting you know up front, if your vodka watermelon didn’t work, keep reading this post to learn how to fix a drunken watermelon that won't absorb vodka on the first go round.

Maple Oatmeal Bread Machine Bread Recipe

Trying to let yeast bread dough proof and rise without my bread machine is a recipe for disaster and ruined bread. I just can’t make it work.

On the other hand, sometimes baking bread in a bread machine start to finish makes it come out as a very dense loaf of bread which is OK for toasting and soup dunking but not so great for sandwich making.

What can I say? I grew up on light and fluffy grocery store bread.

Then the clouds parted from the sky, a rainbow appeared, and a unicorn slide down it to give me the secret to making life and fluffy bread machine bread:

Use the bread machine to make bread dough and bake the bread in the oven.

Let’s do it!

Maple Oat Bread Recipe

 Pin this recipe for later!

 This recipe makes a one pound loaf of bread. If you want to bake a larger loaf of bread doubling the ingredients will make a two pound loaf of bread. My Oster bread machine allows me to make either size loaf of bread.

Maple Oatmeal Bread makes excellent toast. It tastes even better when paired with a hot soup or stew on a crisp Fall evening. Trust me, you will have a happy, happy tummy after dinner  my friend.

You will need:

1 Cup of water

1 Tablespoon of oil (use your favorite - peanut, corn, vegetable, etc.)

1/3 Cup of 100% real maple syrup – Don’t skimp on this. Your taste buds will thank you!

1 Teaspoon of salt

1 Cup of quick quick cook oatmeal

2 Cups of white bread flour

2 Teaspoons of bread machine yeast

Disclosure: There are affiliate links in this post for your convenience.

Make it:

1. Add all of the ingredients into the bread maker pan in the order your bread machine requires.

I can’t stress this enough. The number one reason my bread machine bread failed in my Oster bread machine when I first got it is because I was putting bread ingredients into the Oster bread pan in the same order as I did in my old Black and Decker bread machine. Oops!

2. Set the bread machine loaf size, crust color, etc. if applicable.

3. Press Start to start the machine to bake your bread!

Note: If you want to bake your Maple Oat Bread dough in the oven, I bake a one pound loaf of dough in a greased 5 cup glass loaf pan at 375 degrees (f ) for 50 minutes.

OMG! Thank you! This bread is delicious.By far the best bread I've made. I used whole regular oatmeal because that is what I buy. Other than that, followed your recipe exactly. I don't think I will buy bread again. Texture is perfect, crust is perfect.

I just had to make sure I came back to thank you for sharing this recipe. I'm a n00b and just got a zoji. I realized, after a few failed attempts of using it, that the bread machine isnt a set it and forget it type of thing. Well using your recipe, I noticed during the kneading part that my dough was wet but that was my fault because instead of using a cup of water like you stated I measured a cup out in ml �� so I had to end up adding 1/3 of a cup 3 different times plus a teaspoon. But man oh man...this is the best bread I have ever tasted and that is not an exaggeration! Plus it didnt come out lopsided or sunken in the middle. Next time I will follow your instructions to a T and see how that goes. But seriously you should have hundreds of grateful comments, this bread is fantabulous!

DO NOT just double this. I did for a 2# machine and it was WAY to much. I had to clean it off. The taste is excellent!!!! (I had to try before giving to the chickens). So, I'm going to play with the amounts, because this is good tasting.

The bread didn’t rise well and it was a flop. Not sure what went wrong...is there any particular steps in putting which ingredient in the bread machine first?
Was so looking forward to taste the bread... maybe next time.
Hi Claire! Check the instruction book that came with your bread machine to find the order you need to add the ingredients. Different brands of bread makers can differ in which order you need to add the ingredients

Oh wow! I love oatmeal bread, but have yet to make it with maple syrup. I am the same way with my bread machine; I love it to make dough, but hate the way the dough bakes up. Stopping in from the Happy Now Blog Hop :)

Whipped this up (well, my bread machine whipped it up) yesterday. It makes a lovely and light loaf of bread which makes up wonderful sandwiches. It is not sweet—but you can taste the maple a bit. This one is easy—and a keeper.
