  1. Place oats and raisins in a bowl. Heat 2 cups water to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F; pour over oats and raisins. Cool to 110 degrees F-115 degrees F, about 10 minutes. Place yeast in a small bowl. Heat remaining water to 110 degrees F-115 degrees F; pour over yeast to dissolve. Add to oat mixture. Add the orange juice, molasses, oil, salt and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir into enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape each into a round or oval loaf. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. With a sharp knife, make three to five shallow slashes across the top of each loaf. Beat egg and milk; lightly brush over loaves. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

This recipe takes 3hrs, and makes 3 loaves! I should have read the 1 direction before starting. The Orange flavor is not very strong as directed, but this recipe has no sugar. Next time I'm goin...

Very nice. I left out the raisins bc of the time factor--I used my bread machine to mix and wasn't home for the fruit and nut beep. I'm sure it would be good with them, so I'll try next time. ...

Good taste and texture! I can't really taste the orange, though! This is even better the second day. Great recipe!
