Directions

  1. In a large bowl pour 2 cups boiling water over oats and raisins. Add the orange juice, molasses, vegetable oil, and salt. Cool to 120°-130°, stirring occasionally.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oat mixture and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  3. 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.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape each into a round or oval loaf. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. With a sharp knife, make three to five shallow slashes across the top of each loaf. Beat egg and milk; lightly brush over loaves.
  6. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 loaves (10 slices each).
