IMG_20200203_102341Ingredients:
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 package (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • Melted butter
  • Additional oats
  • Olive oil
  • Nonstick cooking oil
  • Plastic wrap
Materials:
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small bowl
  • Teapot
  • Thermometer
  • Loaf pan (8 x 4 x 2 inch)
Directions:
1.  In a large mixing bowl, combine boiling water and oats; let stand until warm (110°-115°).  In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water; let stand for 5-10 minutes. If the mixture foams up, the yeast mixture can be used and added to oat mixture.  If it does not foam, the yeast should be discarded and redo the step with dissolving yeast with sugar.  Next add honey, butter, salt and raisins beat until smooth.  Add 2 cups flour; beat until smooth.  Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
 
2.  Turned onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl (olive oil), turning once to grease top.  Cover with plastic wrap and place a damp cloth on top.  Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.  Punch the dough down.  Shape into a loaf; place in loaf pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Brush with melted butter.  Sprinkle with oats 
 
3.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.  Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown.  Yield 1 loaf.
