Oatmeal Bread #13

Home | Recipes | O


  • 1 c Oatmeal
  • 2 c Boiling water
  • 3 tb Shortening
  • 2/3 c Brown sugar
  • 1 tb White sugar
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 2 tb Yeast
  • 1/3 c Warm water
  • 5 c Flour


Dissolve yeast in warm water. Pour boiling water over oatmeal; stir in shortening, sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm. When cooled, add to yeast mixture. Beat in flour and knead until smooth and elastic, approximately 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turn to grease all sides of the dough, cover and let rise in warm place for approximately 45 minutes to an hour.
Punch down dough. Divide into two rounded sections and let rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Form into loaves and place in two 8" loaf pans that have been greased. Cover and allow to rise until double.
Preheat oven to 350F. When loaves have doubled bake for 30 minutes, or until done. You can mix 1 egg white with 1 tablespoon of water and brush the top of the loaves, then sprinkle with dry, uncooked oatmeal just prior to baking.
Makes 2- 8" loaves.
