Raisin Brown Bread ADVERTISEMENT This is a very good bread to have with baked beans, or just on it’s own. This recipe can also be used to make rolls. Ingredients 2 cups boiling water 1 cup rolled oats 2 tablespoons shortening 3 tablespoons brown sugar 4 teaspoons salt 1 cup molasses ½ cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 1 teaspoon white sugar 2 tablespoons active dry yeast 3 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 12 cups bread flour 1 ½ cups raisins 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon Directions Instructions Checklist Step 1 Combine boiling water, oats, shortening, brown sugar, salt, and molasses. Allow to cool. Step 2 Stir 1/2 cup warm water and 1 teaspoon white sugar until sugar is dissolved. Sprinkle yeast over this mixture, and proof while oats are cooling. Step 3 Add 3 cups of warm water to the cooled oat mixture. Stir in yeast. Begin stirring in flour 1 cup at a time until it begins to get hard to stir. Dredge raisins in flour, and mix with cinnamon; mix into the dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, and knead in enough flour to make a soft but not sticky dough. Cover. Let rise for 1 to 2 hours in a warm place, or until dough doubles in size. Step 4 Divide dough into 5 parts. Shape loaves, and place into greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Step 5 Bake in a preheated 375 degree F (190 degree C) oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake an additional 20 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
