YUMMOOOOOOOOOO!! I`ll eat a piece for you!
Tomorrow I will make my oatmeal bread...I had planned on making it today but forgot to pick up bread flour which is necessary. This is another winner. It makes 2 loaves but you will need them cause this won`t last!!!
2 Cups Boiling Water 1 teaspoon salt
1 Cup Oats (old fashioned) 1 Tablespoon Butter
3/4 Cup Molasses 1 Yeast Cake
4 or 5 cups BREAD flour
Pour boiling water over oats. Add molasses (spray the measuring cup with oil and it will glide right out!), salt, and butter. Let cool. Dissolve yeast and 1 spoon of sugar in 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Let proof while 1st mixture cools to warm not hot. Add yeast. Add Flour...usually takes me the full 5 cups for the right consistency...which is doughlike but not so sticky you have trouble getting it out.
Spoon into 2 bread pans that have been greased and floured. Let rise until double. I cover mine and put in a warm location. Check in 1 hour...sometimes takes longer. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool some before cutting or it will fall apart. This is a dense,moist bread...delicious with butter from the oven!! Enjoy!!!
