Amma's Honey Oatmeal Bread


2 cups boiling water

1/2 cup honey

2 Tbsp butter

2 tsp salt

1 cup rolled oats

1 Tbsp dry yeast

1/4 cup warm water

2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

2 1/2 cup white flour


Mix together oats, honey, butter, salt & water. Bring to a boil. Let stand to cool to 100 degrees.

Put oat mixture in mixing bowl. Add yeast and add 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of white flour. Add flour as needed to form soft dough. Mix 5 minutes after all flour is mixed in. Dough ball should form on the dough hook. Take out of bowl and knead until smooth. Put into greased bowl and turn it to coat the top. Place in warm spot; cover and let it double in size (about 1.5 hours).

Turn onto floured board and knead for 1-2 minutes. Shape into two loaves and put into well greased loaf pans. Put top down first to coat, and then turn up again. Let it rise until doubled in size.

Bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes.
