In a large mixing bowl, pour boiling water over oats and let stand for about 1/2 hour.
Sprinkle yeast and 1 tsp sugar into warm water; let stand 10 minutes and stir.
Add molasses, sugar, salt and butter to the cooled oatmeal; blend well.
Stir in dissolved yeast.
Add enough flour to make a soft dough.
Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth and elastic; about 10 minutes.
Place in greased bowl; turn to grease top.
Cover with a clean towel and let rise in a warm place until double; about 1 hour.
Punch down and knead lightly for 2 minutes.
Divide dough in half and shape into loaves; place in greased pans.
Cover and let rise until double.
Bake at 400F for 45 - 55 minutes.
Note * If bread darkens too much for your liking while baking - cover with a piece of tin foil, shiny side up; this will keep it from darkening any further.
