  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 3 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 12 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. 1Combine boiling water, oats, shortening, brown sugar, salt, and molasses. Allow to cool.
  2. 2Stir 1/2 cup warm water and 1 teaspoon white sugar until sugar is dissolved. Sprinkle yeast over this mixture, and proof while oats are cooling.
  3. 3Add 3 cups of warm water to the cooled oat mixture. Stir in yeast. Begin stirring in flour 1 cup at a time until it begins to get hard to stir. Dredge raisins in flour, and mix with cinnamon; mix into the dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, and knead in enough flour to make a soft but not sticky dough. Cover. Let rise for 1 to 2 hours in a warm place, or until dough doubles in size.
  4. 4Divide dough into 5 parts. Shape loaves, and place into greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.
  5. 5Bake in a preheated 375 degree F (190 degree C) oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake an additional 20 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
