1 cup flour, all-purpose
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups oats, quick cooking
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 large eggs
1/4 cup honey *
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 teaspoon herbs dried, crumbed, **
1 tablespoon butter unsalted, melted


*Heat the honey until it's liquefied. **Dried herbs such as tarragon, thyme and marjoram. Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. In large mixing bowl, combine flours, oats, baking powder and salt. In a smaller, separate bowl, whisk together egg, honey and buttermilk until well blended. Stir in caraway seeds and herbs. Pour all at once over dry ingredients; blend together with a wooden spoon or spatula until evenly combined. Pour into prepared pan; brush top with melted butter. Bake at 350F (180C) for 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly in pan, then turn onto a wire rack. Bread freezes well. To vary, add 1 tablespoon minced, sauteed onion; chopped, cooked bacon; or grated Cheddar cheese.
