Directions

Put the oats in a bowl, pour over the milk, and leave them to soak for 30 minutes.

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly grease and line the loaf pan with parchment paper, and set aside.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Then, stir in the rolled oats, dried cherries, dried apples, sugar, cinnamon, honey, egg and 3 tablespoons almonds, mixing everything together well. Spoon the mixture into the loaf pan, leveling the top, and sprinkling over the remaining almonds. Bake the loaf until the crust is golden brown and the interior is cooked, about 45 minutes.

Let it rest shortly in the pan before turning the loaf out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut off slices, toast and serve with some fresh ricotta and drizzles of honey.

    This is soooooooo yummy. It was so easy and quick to throw together as well. I substituted dried cranberries for the cherries since I could not get cherries. It is so nice to have a lovely bread recipe without yeast and kneading. I am definitely making this more often and great for kid’s lunch boxes. I used white flour I could not find wholemeal in the supermarket. It was so nice to find a fairly healthy recipe and yummy. I ate it with butter and honey. Thank you Bill, for always have lovely and fail proof recipes.
