Sweet Molasses Oatmeal Bread

Recipe by Leahs Kitchen
READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
SERVES: 10-12
YIELD: 2 loaves




  • Pour oats and water into a small saucepan and cook over medium high heat.
  • Stir until the oats soften and the water is absorbed (about 5 minutes).
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm water in a large bowl and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Add and mix molasses, salt oil eggs and cooled oatmeal.
  • Gradually stir in the flour until the dough begins to form itself into a ball.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for 5- 10 minutes or until it is smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough into an oiled bowl and let rise for 1 hour or until double its size.
  • Punch down dough and divide it into loaves.
  • Place loaves into two well greased loaf pans and let them rise again for 1 hour or until doubled.
  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • Bake loaves for 30-35 minutes or until medium brown on top and on the sides.
  • It is a good idea to be careful with this bread since it is delicate and can tear or stick if you try to remove it from the pans too soon.
  • Enjoy!
