  1. In a large bowl pour the boiling water over the rolled oats. Add the scalded milk and stir. Pour in the oil and molasses. Stir well.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the sugar with the yeast and 1 cup of the flour. When the oatmeal mixture has cooled to lukewarm add the yeast-flour mixture. Stir in the salt and remaining 5 cups of flour. Knead dough for 6 to 8 minutes. Place the dough in a covered greased bowl and let rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Punch the dough down. Knead for 2 minutes. Divide dough into two pieces and place into greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pans. Cover pans and let rise until almost doubled in size.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 1 hour, or until nicely browned. Let the loaves cool on a rack. Remove loaves from pan; wrap well and store in a cool spot.

I was alitle short on molasses, so I used some honey as well. I'm glad I did. I'm afraid it would have been to strong of molasses flavor if I had used the full amount. I also had to use about a...

Granny knows best, this bread is great. I thought my arms would die before it was kneaded though! I added 2 beaten eggs to the batter and reduced the milk to 1/2 cup to compensate. The molasses ...

Excellent taste, excellent texture - I made this in my Bosch and it was easy!
