Here's a recipe that is one of our family favorites. Easy and soooo good.
2 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon salt
2 1/2 cups boiling water
2 packages yeast
1/2 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
5 1/2 - 6 cups flour
In a large mixing bowl combine oats, brown sugar, butter and salt. Add boiling water and stir. Cool to 100-115 degrees. In small dish, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand for five minutes. Add to oat mixture along with two cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5-7 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about one hour.
