Our talented employees often bake in our wood cook stoves, the delicious aromas wafting through the stove room beckoning visitors to come see what’s cookin’.
On a recent Saturday, Eva, our resident cook stove baking expert, baked a few batches of delicious oatmeal dinner rolls. They are always immensely popular! (You can see the Facebook Live video here.)
We had many requests for the recipe, and here it is, courtesy of Kitchen Category Manager Amy Murray, who prepared the rolls for Eva to bake.
Cast Iron Skillet Oatmeal Rolls
(AKA Oatmeal Bread, from The More-With-Less-Cookbook – one of our favorite cookbooks!)
Combine in large bowl:
1 cup quick oats
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 T salt
2 T butter
2 cups boiling water
Stir to combine.
1 T dry yeast in 1/2 cup warm water
When batter is cooled to lukewarm, add yeast.
5 cups white flour
Stir until dough is stiff enough to handle. Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead 5-10 minutes. Place in greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and let rise again. Shape into dinner rolls and place in cast iron skillet (this will make about 2 skillets) or form into loaves and place in 2 greased loaf pans. Bake in a wood cook stove (or your conventional oven) for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until golden brown on top.
