Oatmeal Bread ~ by Caroline

                                                                                This recipe comes from our beloved Grandma Jerke, who is now in heaven with Jesus!  She also shared it with our church family in the Shoestring Valley Community Church cookbook, and we are soooo glad she did! 

It is such a moist bread, and makes for amazing sandwiches or toast for breakfast. OR you can make it into rolls for dinner!  Yum!!!  

Makes 2 loaves

1c. quick oatmeal
2 c. boiling water
3 Tbsp. butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 pkg. yeast, dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water with 1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
5 c. flour

Mix together oatmeal, water and butter and cool to lukewarm.  Add brown sugar, yeast mixture and salt.  Mix in flour, kneading and letting it rise.  Shape into 2 loaves or into rolls.  Let rise for 1/2 hour.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
