Brown Bread

Yields: 2 loafs

1 cup rolled oats
½ cup molasses
2 tbsp butter
2 cups boiling water
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast
5 cups all-purpose flour + extra for kneading

Special Equipment
2 Loaf pans

1. In a large bowl mix together rolled oats, molasses, butter, boiling water, salt, and let stand for an hour.
2. After 40 minutes prepare in a small bowl stir together warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let stand the yeast bloom for 15 minutes
3. Add to yeast mixture and flour to rolled oats mixture and combine. Once the flour is fully incorporated knee in remaining cup of flour 1/4 cup at a time until the dough is firm and not sticky. Note: Don’t use all of the flour if you don’t need it because your dough will be heavy.
4. Knead for about 5 to 10 min until the dough is smooth and elastic. Put the dough in a greased bowl and let rise for 1½ hours or until double in size. Grease 2 loaf pans, divide the dough into 2 equal pieces, form into loaves to fit your pans, and place in the pans. Let rise again until dough doubles in size.
5. Bake at 350 F for 35 to 45 min.
