How to make it

  • Pour 3 Cups boiling water over 1 cup oatmeal
  • cool with 2 to 4 cups water
  • add salt, shortening, yeast, sugar, molassas, and nut meats. Mix well
  • add enough flour to make a hard loaf
  • let rise
  • shape into loaves, let rise again
  • bake at 400 F for 10 min
  • turn oven down to 350, bake an additional 50 min.
  • remove from pans and cool on wire rack.
  • (makes 3 to 4 loaves)
  • dinner rolls
  • bake in moderate oven untill brown.
  • Notes:
  • 1) this is as the recipe reads. (from my great grand mother)
  • 2) The nuts are optional (I use 1 cup chopped walnuts).
  • 3) I assume that step 2 is cooling the boiling water to 125 F+/-- for the yeast.
  • 4) I usualy use about 4 pounds of flour (hard loaf) and this does need to be kneaded.
  • 5) butter the loaf before letting rise the first time. cover the loaf with a light towl and let rise in a warm draft free place.
  • 7) butter the pans
  • 8) I assume moderate oven is 350 F to 375 F.
