My mother taught me to make this bread when I was 10 years old. And of the many kinds of breads I've baked over the years, this one is my favorite. I tastes marvelous and it's good for you!—Jackie Gavin, Essex Junction, Vermont

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over cereal. Add the molasses, shortening and salt. Let stand until warm (110°-115°), stirring occasionally.
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the orange juice, oat mixture and whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.

  5. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks; brush with butter. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2013

"This bread has a really good flavor to it and wasn't difficult to make. Mine was a little dense, but I'm thinking that I didn't knead it enough. Will be trying again!"
