Dec.21st. Bread making

I love to make bread. I love the way it adds a lovely smell to the kitchen, but most of all I love to watch the family totally enjoy the warm bread. They eat it with such delight, that always warms this cook’s heart.

I make an oatmeal bread for it holds the moisture in the bread longer.

2 T. Of yeast

4 cups of warm water

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of oil

1T. Salt

9 cups of flour

2 cups of oatmeal

.Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add sugar, oil, salt,and 3 cups of flour , all the oatmeal , then mix well. Finish out using the rest of the flour in the kneading of the dough. Let rise for an hour, shape into loaves . Again let it raise until double. Bake at 350 for 25 – 30 mins.

The mincemeat cookies that I posted about last week were a “hit” among the family!
