Ingredients:  
3/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of dark molasses

Directions:
Directions:
Place honey and molasses in a large bowl.
Stir in the hot water, then add cold (I use ice cubes so it cools down faster).
Cool to luke warm, just above room temperature and add yeast (the warmth and the sugar will activates the yeast). Add oil and stir gently for one minute.
Gradually add flour and salt. Stirring until bread pulls from the sides of bowl.

Knead on well-floured board until mixture is elastic though moist to the touch. Dough should feel cool, almost wet to the touch but not stick to the hands.

Place in an over-sized well-greased bowl. Flip the dough over so the top is also greased. Cover the bowl with a wet towel and let rise in a warm room for one hour or till doubled in size.

Punch down and knead for five minutes. Let rise again for 45 minutes. Punch down and knead for two minutes.

Divide into three, place in well-greased bread loaf pans. Let rise for 30 minutes. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Personal Notes:
I like to bake this bread so it comes out about eight o'clock in the evening. What a treat. Let the bread cool in the pans for about ten minutes before slicing. Then, sit down in front of a good movie and let folks slice off their own servings. Have plenty of butter and homemade jams to slather on top. And don't forget to have plenty of Grandma Rose's Apple Butter on hand!
