Tasha Tudor's Oatmeal Bread

I checked out the Tasha Tudor cookbook from the library this week. I Love it! I made her oatmeal bread today and after Jason took one bite of the bread he told me I was a goddess (yes, it is that good :)). So I thought that made the recipe worth sharing! This is how I made it below (her original recipe uses 10 cups of white flour).

Tasha Tudor's Oatmeal Bread

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
4 tsp. salt
1 cup molasses
2 tbs. butter
4 cups boiling water
1 cup lukewarm water
4 1/2 t. yeast
5 cups all-purpose flour
5 cups whole wheat flour

Grease 3, 5 x 9 inch loaf pans.
Combine the oats, salt, molasses, and butter in mixing bowl. Add boiling water and allow to sit for 1 hour.
After hour has passed, add to mixing bowl:
1 cup lukewarm water and yeast, stir to dissolve (let proof 5 minutes before adding it to the bowl). Now mix in the flour. Turn this out onto a floured surface and knead the dough for about 8 minutes. Once well kneaded and mixed turn it into a greased bowl for rising. About 1 hour.
Punch down and section off into 3 loaves. Place loaves into prepared pans and cover, allow to rise until double. About 1 hour. Bake in 350 preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until they sound hollow when thumped.
