Directions

  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 LOVED it! But, I love Molasses. I used applesauce instead of oil, splenda instead of sugar, and whole wheat flour. Excellent Recipe!!

This is great oatmeal bread. I like it even better when using mostly honey instead of other sweeteners.

This bread was a deep disappointment. I love oatmeal bread and expected the wonderful taste of oatmeal to shine in this recipe. However, the major flavor is the molasses. I followed the recipe exactly and was a little worried about the amount of molasses, but I read all the shining reviews I thought I would take a chance. Sorry, but this bread should maybe be named "Molasses Oatmeal" bread. In other words, molasses bread made with oatmeal. Sorry!
