Oatmeal Molasses Bread Posted by Hello

I found this recipe in a 1956 Betty Crocker's PICTURE COOK BOOK that I found for $.25 at a garage sale last summer. It has some great casserole and cakes recipes as well as yeast bread recipes like this one. I love this recipe since the dough requires no kneading and it only requires one rising. It is very quick for a yeast bread recipe. The results are a very moist and nice dark colored loaf. We made egg salad sandwiches for lunch using this bread.

Moist, delicious, and crusty! Made without kneading.
Stir together in mixing bowl...
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup light molasses
1 T salt
Cool to lukewarm.
Combine, stirring to dissolve...
2 pkg active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water(not hot-110 to 115 degrees)
Stir into lukwarm oatmeal mixture. Mix well.
2 eggs
5 1/2 cups sifted flour
Mix thoroughly. Cover; let stand 15 min. Place dough in 2 greased 9x5x3" loaf pans and pat into a loaf shape. Let rise in warm place until double (1 1/2) hour ) bake until brown

Temperature: 350 degrees (mod oven)
