Makes 1 loaf; 8 servings

Louise Galen serves this easy bread as an accompaniment to bacon omelets. Prep and Cook Time: about 2 hours. Notes: Make sure this bread is completely cool before you cut it, or it will crumble. It's even better when made a day ahead.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine oats and buttermilk. Let soak 1 hour.

Step 2

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°. Generously grease a loaf pan with 1 tbsp. butter. Stir brown sugar and eggs into oat mixture. In a large bowl, stir together flour, wheat germ, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

Step 3

Melt remaining 6 tbsp. butter and set aside to cool slightly. Add oat mixture to dry ingredients. Stir in currants and melted butter, and mix until well combined.

Step 4

Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake until loaf has risen and is well browned, about 40 minutes.

Step 5
