I found this wonderful recipe in book from the library simply titled "Grains". (with a couple of teeny changes)

Makes for a bit of a dry bread, and to the crumbly side, but oh so good!

1.5 cups plain flour

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

2 t baking powder

1/4 t salt

1 stick of butter

3/4 cup cane sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

zest of one lemon

Lemon Syrup Topping:

1/4 c water

3T cane sugar

3T fresh lemon juice

(I prefer to double this!)

Preheat oven to 350. Butter loaf pan.

Cream butter and sugar, blend in eggs until smooth.

Add remaining ingredients, folding in walnuts and zest last.

Spread in bread pan and bake 55 to 69 minutes.

Mix ingredients for syrup and heat to boil in small sauce pan and remove from heat.

When bread is done, poke it several times with toothpick and pour syrup over bread. Allow to stand at least ten minutes and turn out onto serving plate. Let cool and cut!

**You could use any citrus fruit!
