Oatmeal Molasses Bread

This recipe has been baked and served at Rabbit Hill Inn for close to 100 years.

Jane Meyer has made a most wonderful step-by-step video on how to make this bread.

2 cups water
1 cup quick oats
1-1/2 Tablespoons butter
1 package dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup molasses
2 teaspoons salt
4-2/3 cups flour

Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in quick oats and butter. Let stand for one hour. Soak yeast in lukewarm water for 5 minutes. Stir until dissolved and add molasses, salt, and oatmeal mixture. Stir thoroughly and add 4-2/3 cups of flour. Knead for 8 minutes. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk. Divide into 2 pieces and mold into 2 loaves of bread. Let rise in a warm place, covered with a towel, until doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
Oatmeal Honey Bread
I have modified this to make a honey oat by substituting honey for the molasses or by substituting half honey and half molasses for the molasses and it is very tasty.
