This is a very different bread, that you cannot find in the stores.

This recipe make two medium loaves, but why not try dinner rolls, well.

How to Make Oatmeal Black Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. For rising agents, boil water then add to milk. Add brown sugar and stir. Allow to cool to warm, then add yeast and stir completely. Allow to become very bubbly and to grow in size. Maybe 10-15 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk wet ingredients.
  4. Add the rising agents and the wet ingredients to the dry mixture. Stir well. This should become quite sticky.
  5. Turn dough out to a floured cutting board. With flour dusted hands, knead dough. Add flour as needed.
  6. Place in a large pot with a lid; first spray pot with non-stick spray. Allow to double in size for one hour.
  7. Dump dough back on floured cutting board. Punch down and knead. Place back in pot. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours.
  8. Divide dough in halves. Form into two loaves. Place on cookie sheets sprayed with non-stick spray.
  9. If making a circular loaf, cut an X atop. If making a French bread style loaf, just cut in a succession of slanted lines all facing the same way.
  10. Rub loaves with oil or butter optionally. Then sprinkle with toppings.
  11. Place in oven at 350. Cook for 45 minutes or so.
