Oh, the way your house smells when baking homemade bread!!! I got this recipe from a church friend who has 9 children. I scaled it down for my family. I bake bread twice a week. So much better than store bought.

This was SO delicious! Just made this last evening. DH sat up & ate a bunch before bed! I followed the recipe exactly, but ended up adding a total of 12-13 c. of flour total. Made four lovely loaves! Thanks for sharing! This is a really hearty, filling bread (probably due to the oatmeal). Looking forward to using this for toast this morning! Thanks for sharing!
