Tips For Making This Honey Oat Bread

You’ll know when the dough is ready to rise when it becomes smooth and elastic. It should spring back up immediately when lightly pressed and shouldn’t tear when you pull it.
Rise. You may not be able to tell when the dough has doubled in size, so here’s a simple trick for checking if the bread is done rising. Once you believe dough has doubled in size, simply use your fingers to make a half inch indentation into the top of the dough. If the indentation remains, the dough is ready for the next step. If the indentation goes away, the dough needs more time to rise.
Done. You can tell the bread is done when the outside has reached a nice dark, golden brown color. Another option is to check the internal temperature of the bread with a digital meat thermometer. Most breads are finished baking when they’ve reached 190° F.
