Oatmeal bread

Oatmeal bread -
This came from my cousin Heidi. This is so easy. This recipe is one of those "bake 2 loaves, one to eat right away and one to use later" I wouldn't call it the lowest in calories, but it sure is good! It's measurements are for a Bosch mixer that makes 4-6 loaves. If you have a Kitchen Aid, just half the recipe.
6 cups hot water
6 cups rolled oats (quick will work too)
1&1/4 cups brown sugar
2/3 cups oil
2 Tbsp Dough enhancer (if you have it)
2 Tbsp Salt
2 Tbsp Vital Gluten
2 Tbsp Powdered Milk
2 Tbsp yeast
10-12 cups white flour
Pour hot water into bowl, add everything except the flour. (Let cool a little if the water is too hot for the yeast. ) Add 5 cups of flour and start mixing. Continue adding flour until dough pulls easily away from the sides of the bowl. You will use somewhere between 10 and 14 cups of flour (I think). Do not overmix. As soon as dough is "baby bottom soft" it's ready (not sticky but not elastic either.) Oil your hands and divide dough.I put this into 4 loaf pans, but it depends on the size pans you have. If they are all 9x5, you'll probably only use 3.I do not let my dough rise before I put it into the pans, I just mix, put it in the pans and then let it rise (30-45 minutes....or whenever I remember that I'm making bread and I need to put it in the oven.) Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
