This recipe has been used by our family for over 40 years. We had this bread often and it was always gone in one day.

Top Review by Vinca

This is a great recipe and the bread is scrumptious. I didn't have quick cooking oats so I soaked regular oats in the warm milk for a while to soften them up. I also substituted some King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour for some of the all purpose flour. I can't wait to try this as toast tomorrow morning!
