Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2/3 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 6 cups flour

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine butter, salt, and rolled oats.
  2. Pour the 2 cups of boiling water over the rolled oats mixture. Cool to lukewarm.
  3. In a small bowl combine 1 cup of warm water and sugar. Stir in yeast then add to the cooled oat mixture.
  4. Mix in molasses.
  5. Gradually add flour. (You may need to turn the dough out onto the counter to incorporate the final cup or two of flour.)
  6. Divide dough in half, shape into loaves, and place in two greased loaf pans.
  7. Cover with a clean dishtowel and let rise until doubled in bulk (about 1.5 hours, but really depends on how warm your kitchen is).
  8. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes to an hour, until loaves sound hollow when tapped.
  9. Remove from pans to cool.
