When we lived in Texas, a dear friend shared this recipe with me. I named it after her. This is one variation of the recipe she shared with me. It makes 3 loaves. I like to bake all three loaves at once and give one away, freeze a loaf and enjoy one for supper.
What you'll need:
1/2 cup sugar or honey
2 T. yeast
1/2 cup oil
2 rounded tsp. salt
3-4 cup warm water
1/2 cup blended oats
2 c. whole wheat flour
8-10 c. white flour
Dissolve yeast in 1 c. warm water. Add 3 cups warm water, oil, salt, sugar (or honey), ground oats, and whole wheat flour. Add white flour enough to make a stiff dough. Knead. Let rise until double. Punch down. Let rise again until double. Shape into loaves. Let rise until double.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Brush with butter after they come out of the oven.
These are not heavy as a brick loaves of bread. They are light and fluffy and makes great sandwich bread. Freezes well. Let cool with flour sack towel on top. Slice after cooled.
