Oatmeal Bread

Happy Saturday everybody! I apologize for this being a day late but I was without internet access all day yesterday so I couldn’t post this recipe. This week I have a bread recipe for you. This bread was one of the more difficult and time-consuming recipes that I have done so far. This bread tastes delicious and is worth the time that it takes to make it but it is definitely a recipe to make when you have nothing else going on. Here’s how to make oatmeal bread:

You will need: yeast, water, milk, shortening, salt, molasses, flour, and rolled oats.IMG_0992

First, scald the milk. IMG_0994Then soften the yeast in your warm water. Pour the scalded milk over the shortening, salt, and molasses. IMG_0997Stir until the shortening melts. Let it cool to luke warm. IMG_0998Stir in 1 cup of the flour. IMG_0999Add the yeast, oats, and enough flour to make a soft dough. IMG_1001Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Knead dough until satiny.IMG_1002 Place the dough in a greased bowl and let rise for 1 hour. IMG_1005Punch down and let rest for 10 minutes. Split into two loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Let rise for another hour. IMG_1006Bake at 375°F for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from pans, let cool and enjoy!IMG_1009 IMG_1010
