This is the closest I can get to the bread that is served at Black Angus Restaurants.
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
- 2 cups warm water
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 3⁄8 cup molasses
- 1⁄8 cup vegetable shortening
- 1⁄2 tablespoon salt
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup quick oats
- Dissolve the yeast in one cup of lukewarm water with 1 teaspoon of the sugar.
- In a separate bowl combine the remaining water with the molasses, shortening and salt.
- Add the remaining sugar and the yeast mixture, mix until smooth.
- Gradually add the flour mix.
- Place dough on a light floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 12 minutes.
- Place dough in a grease bowl, turn dough over to grease the other side.
- Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
- Divide into three portions and shape into balls.
- Place three balls side by side in a baking pan.
- Brush top lightly with melted margarine and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Heat the oven to 375F degrees.
- Bake for 45 minutes or until the golden brown (use the lowest rack in the oven).
- Remove bread from the pan and brush the top with additional melted margarine sprinkle with quick oats, place back in oven for 15 minutes.
- Place on wire racks to cool.
Really flavorful and a nice texture. I have never had Black Angus bread, so had no clue what it should look like, and the instructions weren't quite clear. Were the three balls put side by side in a loaf pan (bread pan) or a square or round pan? I put mine side by side in a loaf pan and got a funny looking loaf, so maybe it was supposed to be three separate round loaves? I also cut recipe in half to fit a smaller pan. That being said, the bread turned out very good. I will just put it all in one piece in the loaf pan next time, though. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
This bread is really good! It does closely match the Black Angus bread. My whole family loved it. Even my picky nephew Nate.
I replaced 2 c of the bread flour with wheat flour. I used partially cooked irish oats instead of the quick cook. I also added one extra package of yeast.
I will definitely make this bread again.
