Jane’s Oatmeal Whole Wheat Molasses Bread

Thanks Jane! Looks delicious. I’ll try it out and let you know how it goes.


2  1/2 cups boiling water

1 cup quick cooking oatmeal

1  1/2 TLB butter

1 TLB yeast (or 1 pkt if using pkts)

1/2 cup molasses

1 tsp. salt ( less if you rather)

2  1/2 cups whole wheat flour

2  1/2 cups unbleached white flour


In lg bowl, pour boiling water over oatmeal and butter.  Stir occasionally for about 20 minutes while it cools.  Add molasses and salt.  Stir.  Sprinkle yeast and 1 cup of flour on oatmeal mixture and stir to dissolve yeast.  Continue to stir in additional flour until of a kneading consistency.  Continue to knead in flour until the bread is fairly smooth and elastic, but not too dry.  Place dough in buttered bowl and let rise until double.  Punch down and form into 2 loaves.  Let rise again until almost double in size.  Bake in 375 degree oven for 35 minutes.  Remove from pans and cool on rack. ENJOY.  This sweet bread makes absolutely delicious sandwiches (try it for grilled Swiss cheese!) and a lovely breakfast toast. Molasses bread
