Oatmeal Bread

2 tablespoons active yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups hot water
6-6 1/2 cups flour (can use half whole wheat)
2 cups oats
1/3 cup non-instant dry milk

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Put hot water in large bowl and add salt, honey, and oil. Combine 2 cups flour, oats, and dry milk. Stir into liquid. Add yeast and beat with electric mixer at high speed for 3-4 minutes. Add remaining flour and knead to make a smooth, elastic dough. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Divide dough and shape into two loaves. Place in greased 9x5-inch bread pans and let rise until double. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Testing comment: Good texture and flavor.
