My mom is a wonderful cook. She makes perfectly comforting and easy recipes and is always willing to share them. This molasses oatmeal bread recipe is another of my Mom’s and it is so yummy. When I was younger I would smell the oatmeal bread cooking and hover around the kitchen until it came out of the oven. Then we would slice off a thick, warm piece of bread, add a little butter and honey and chow down.

There may not be anything better than fresh, warm bread out of the oven. It’s so so good, but many will never know the joy of fresh bread as it makes them so nervous to make it.

That’s just silliness. Bread making is actually really easy and I never like that people make it such a big deal. Especially this one, put it all into the KitchenAid mixer and let it whirl. The only thing you’ll have to do is knead it and who doesn’t need a little dough therapy punching every now and again?

Cade and I can’t help ourselves,whenever this bread comes out of the oven. We just have to slice off a piece and eat it warm. It’s irresistible. But right after that we hurry to wrap it tightly in saran wrap which keeps the bread soft all week long. It’s the best way to do it.
