by Shelly's Bread Cookbook (can be purchased on my web site www.paulasbread.com)
7 cups hot water
1 cup oil and 1 cup honey
8 cups freshly milled white spring wheat flour
4 cups rolled oats OR freshly milled oat flour
4 Tbs. ground cinnamon
2 Tbs. salt
2 Tbs. dough enhancer
1/3 cup vital wheat gluten
5-6 Tbs. SAF yeast
8-10 cups additional white spring wheat flour
In Bosch blender, add 3 cups hot water and 2.5 cups raisins. Let soak for 5-10 minutes, then pulse so they are just chopped and not pureed. Pour into Bosch mixing bowl and add 4 more cups of hot water.
Add the rest of the ingredients, with yeast on top, except last amount of flour. Pulse, until flour is completely moistened. Turn off and sponge (rest dough) for 15-20 minutes.
Turn machine back on to speed 1 while adding additional flour, until the dough cleans the side of the bowl. Turn to speed 2 and knead for 3-5 minutes.
Grease hands and divide the dough into 6 equal loaves. Place in greased loaf pan and let double in size. Bake 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Yield 6 loaves!!
