The first bread I picked from the World Bread Day 2013 roundup is a simple one, because I think it is important to show that it is really easy to make good bread. This loaf shows that it is not essential to bake with preferment and/or sourdough to get a tasty bread.
BBD #62 - Oat Honey Bread with Buttermilk
The inspiration, yes I say inspiration because I rarely follow a recipe, I found in the P section of the World Bread Day roundup to be precise in the Polish blog Sweet Escape Into Kitchen from Judyta Deker. She writes about this bread:

“Easy-to-make whole wheat bread with wonderful honey flavour. Fluffy, soft and also very healthy. There is nothing more delightful than a homemade, freshly baked loaf.”

So true, I don’t have to say more…
