2 packages Rapid Rise yeast
2 c. boiling water
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. molasses
1/3 c. butter or shortening
1 T. salt
6-7 c. unbleached white flour

Combine 2 c. boiling water, 1 1/2 c. rolled oats, 1/2 c.
molasses, 1/3 c. butter or shortening, and 1 T. salt. Cool to
very warm (120-130 degrees). Sift 6 to 6 1/2 c. unbleached
white flour, or a combination of white and whole wheat. Stir in 2 c. of the sifted flour and 2 packages Rapid
Rise yeast to very warm liquid; beat well. Add 2 eggs; beat
well again. Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Turn out on lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and
elastic. Cover and let rest on the counter for 15 minutes.
Divide into 2 halves, shape into loaves, and place in 2 greased
regular loaf pans. Cover with plastic under a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until double,
about 1 hour. Uncover and bake at 375 for 35 minutes.
When brown on top, remove from pans and place on side on
cooling rack. Inhale the wonderful aroma! Yummy plain or toasted!

I usually make 3 smaller loaves for my small family, but this
