Oatmeal Bread

  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 a yeast cake or 1/2 cup yeast
  • Wheat flour
Boil 2 cups oatmeal as for porridge, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and when cool, 1/2 cup molasses, and 1/2 a yeast cake or 1/2 cup yeast; stir in enough wheat flour to make as stiff as it can be stirred with a spoon; put it into 2 well greased tin pans, and let stand in a warm location till very light; bake about 1 1/4 hours. Be careful not to cut until the day after it is baked. This will make delicious thin slices; butter each slice before cutting it from the loaf, and then cut as thin as possible with a very sharp knife.
