This recipe has been passed down through my family from my Swedish great-grandmother. Last Christmas, my 78-year-old mom made and distributed 25 of these loaves. The slightly sweet bread receives high praise, even from my children, who are picky eaters. -Patricia Finch Kelly, Rindge, New Hampshire

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 45 min. + cooling
MAKES: 48 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 9 to 10 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over cereal. Add the molasses, sugar, oil and salt. Let stand until mixture cools to 110°-115°, stirring occasionally. Stir in yeast. Add 8 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down and divide into thirds; shape into loaves. Place in three greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 loaves (16 slices each).

We love this bread. I give it as gifts at Christmastime. People really like it. It freezes well.

This recipe makes bread that is very satisfying and goes a long way toward reviving one who is hungry and feeling down. The smell of the bread baking is also a huge advantage over other recipes. It does not last long enough to get old.

This is very good bread and I?ll make it again. Be aware, however, it does make three loaves. So make sure you have plenty of help eating it! Once they taste it, you?ll have no problem finding volunteers.

So good!

I made this bread today- its delicious! It reminds me of the bread they serve at our local Black Angus- I spilt the recipe in half and made four small round loaves on a cookie sheet. I also sprinkled a few oats on the top before baking. I enjoyed some right out the oven- great stuff!

Leftovers are so good, toasted and with butter and honey spread on top.
