Molasses Oatmeal Bread

6 cups of flour
2 cups of oats
1 teaspoon of salt
2 packages of yeast
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of molasses
1/2 cup of butter or margarine
2 eggs

In a mixing bowl combine 4 1/2 cups of the flour, the oats, salt, and the yeast. Combine the water,
milk, molasses, and butter or margarine in a pan and heat to 120-130 degrees. Let the milk
mixture cool. With an electric mixer on medium, gradually add the liquids to flour mixture. Beat
for 2 minutes. Add the eggs and 3/4 cup of flour and beat for another 2 minutes. Stir in enough
additional flour to make a soft dough. Turn out the dough and knead for 8-10 minutes. Place the
dough into a greased bowl, turning the dough to grease the top. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
Punch down the dough and turn out onto lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 4 equal
parts. Take 2 sections and role into 12" ropes, then twist them together, turn the ends under,
and place in 8.5" x 4.5" x 2.5" loaf pan. Repeat for remaining dough. Cover the loaf pans and let
rise 1 hour. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. Toothpick should come out
clean when the bread is done. Put the loaves out on a cooling rack until it's had the chance to
dry out a bit.
