Oatmeal Bread

This bread doesn’t last long in our house.  Depending on the size of your bread pans, this can make 5 – 6 loaves.

Mix:

6 cups quick oats
3 Tablespoons salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup molasses
3/4 cup butter
3 cups boiling water

In a separate bowl, mix:

3 Tablespoons yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water

Mix the first 6 ingredients and let cool to lukewarm.  Add the yeast mixture and then add 3 cups of tap water.  Mix in about 15 cups of flour, as needed.  Knead and let rise until doubled.  Punch down and shape into loaves.  Let rise again and then bake at 425º for 15 minutes.  Then turn the oven down to 375º and bake for another 30 minutes or so..
