Brown Sugar Apple Oatmeal Bread


1 cup lukewarm apple juice (about 100 degrees F)
1 large egg
1 cup regular rolled oats
1½ cups whole wheat flour
1½ cups all purpose flour
¼ cup wheat bran
1½ tsp salt
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1½ cups peeled, chopped Granny Smith Apple
1½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
2 tsp active dry yeast
2 Tablespoons brown sugar, for topping


Place to the side the brown sugar topping. Add all ingredients in bread machine pan according to your bread machine recommended order. Set machine on “dough” cycle. When cycle has finished, turn dough onto a lightly floured board. Divide into two halves or leave as one large loaf. Lightly knead and shape each piece into a boule, or round ball. Place dough onto a flat parchment paper lined pan. Let rise, uncovered, for about an hour until dough is soft and springy. Place a baking tile on lower oven rack. Preheat oven to 350°F. Slash loaves in a criss-cross pattern. When oven is ready, slide parchment paper and loaves onto baking tile. Bake for about 30 minutes (40 min for large loaf) until loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped. Transfer loaves to cooling rack. Immediately rub 1 Tbsp of brown sugar over top of each loaf. Cool completely.
