Recipe: Brown Oaten Bread

Thought y'all might enjoy this hearty, richly textured quick bread.  We
tried it out on friends last night--everyone gave it a big thumbs up.  We
even made it into dessert by putting some pear preserves on top.  Mmmmm!!!
(Now I have to learn how to make pear preserves!)

Credit Houston Chronicle reprinting a recipe from Diane Murrell, who got
the recipe from a friend from Zimbabwe.

		Makes a rather flat loaf, although it crested.  Try a thinner loaf pan?
