Oatmeal Bread



Oatmeal Bread

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

2 cups boiling water

3 Tbs butter

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 tbs molasses

1 tbs sugar

1/2 cup potato flakes

2 pkg active yeast

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup warm water

5 cups flour


In a large bowl, combine the oats, boiling water, butter, brown sugar and molasses. Try not to eat it…this makes an awesome bowl of oatmeal!

In a seperate bowl, add sugar, potato flakes, salt, yeast, and warm water. Let sit for about 5 minutes.

When the oatmeal cools to warm to the touch, add yeast mixture. Stir in flour. Mix in a mixer with dough hook for six minutes or knead until dough no longer sticks to your fingers.

Let rise for 1 hour.

Shape into loaves and rise for another hour.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy! This is good with soup or with jelly. Or even by itself!
