To the rolled oats, salt and shortening, add the 2 cups boiling water. When this mixture is tepid, add molasses and the yeast dissolved in 2/3 cup warm water. To all of the above add flour until the dough is firm enough to handle. (Dough should be stiff enough so that when you try to life it with a spoon it doesn't separate into two parts). Now let the dough rise until it is double in size. Mold with buttered hands and place in bread pans. Let rise again until double in size, and then bake in 350 degrees F oven for one hour. This is a real family treat!

I plan to try your easy recipe but have my doubts about the amount of salt. 1 Tablespoon? I would think that is a typo and a teaspoon would be all that is needed. I will let you know how it tastes.
<b>Editor's Note:</b> Yes, it is a typo. We changed it on the recipe.
Thanks for catching that.
