RE: Rusty--Oatmeal Bread Recipe (Follow-Up #3)

Well, Rusty, two loaves of it disappeared in less than 24 hours and there were only 3 of us eating on it! Both DH & DSII gave it enthusiastic 2 thumbs up reviews. I did tear up a tiny bit to give to the parrots; they liked it, too!

Oh, and it makes me happy to know that I've made your day. Good bread!!

Walnutcreek, the recipe is on the 'old Hobart/ new Kitchen Aid?' thread. I'm cutting & pasting below.

(I subbed butter for the shortening and used a scant 1/2 cup sugar plus a dollop of molasses instead of the brown sugar. The bread is rather sweet which was OK with us since we were eating it for dessert! You may or may not want to cut back on the sugaar. I made the 2 loaf recipe using the bread machine to mix & knead. Didn't think my bread machine would handle the 3 loaf version.)

Rusty's Oatmeal Bread

It comes from a very old Pillsbury cook book.

The first amounts are as the recipe was published,
The amounts in parenthesis after
Are the amounts I use for 3 loaves.
(9 1/2 X 5 loaf pans)

Oatmeal Bread

Ing:

2 tsp salt (3 tsp)
2 C boiling water (3 C)
1 C rolled oats (1 1/2 C)*
1 Tbsp shortening (1 1/2 Tbsp)
1 Cake compressed yeast (1 1/2 cakes)**
1 tsp sugar (1 1/2 tsp)
1/4 C lukewarm water (3/8 C)
1/2 C brown sugar (3/4 C)
5 C flour (7 1/2 C)

Directions:

Add salt to boiling water.
Stir in shortening and rolled oats.
Let stand until lukewarm (about an hour).
Crumble yeast in large bowl.
Add white sugar and 1st amount lukewarm water.
Let stand to 'proof' yeast.
Dissolve brown sugar in 2nd amount lukewarm water.
Add to yeast mixture.
Stir in 1/2 of the flour.
Beat until smooth.
Add remaining flour and oats.
Continue to beat until smooth.***
Let rise in warm place until double in bulk.
"Punch" down and knead by hand until smooth and elastic.
Divide into 2 (or 3) loaves,
Place in prepared pans.

Bake at 425 for about 15 min.
Reduce oven to 375
And bake about 25 to 30 minutes.
Until done.

*I use only the old fashioned oats.
** yeast cakes are nowhere to be found around here,
So I use active dry yeast.
As per directions on the jar.
2 1/4 tsp (3 3/8) tsp
Or 1 packet (1 1/2 packets)
*** I don't hand knead at all before the 1st rise,
My K A does it all.

I've found the amount of yeast for the 3 loaves
doesn't have to be absolutely exact.
The bread will be good, no matter.

This is a soft, almost moist bread.
Makes wonderful sandwiches, toast and french toast.
I have also rolled the dough out
after the first rise and dividing it,
to about a half inch thickness,
The width slightly shorter than the length of my pans,
And lightly buttered it.
Sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar
and rolled up,
Then placed in the pans.
Raisins and/or nuts can be added here, too.
