|I'll admit, this looks a tad gross. Like I need a lab coat and a beaker to proceed.|
|Ah that's better... I think|
|I finally found a "molasses bread" that actually uses real molasses!|
|It's the unsweetened cocoa power that gives this bread it's darker hue, but luckily not a chocolate flavor at all.|
|Pretty lil' dough ball|
|Hello big ol' bread lump!|
|Just sort of stretched and gently pulled the dough into a long tubular shape|
|You really have to be patient to make yummy bread.|
Then sprinkle on some of those quick oats and they will stick to the egg wash.
|Look how pretty! Now it looks like a longer version of the round rolls you share at the restaurant|

|Our hopes were high at this point. It looked great... it smelled great... but would it taste great?|
My hubby surprised us with some fancy Kerry Gold Irish butter, he had been saving for just such an occasion. The bread was still warm enough to start slowly melting the butter... YUM.

I have to thank Autumn for this recipe that turned out fantastic! It's soft, it's got a great texture, it smells fabulous... AND it tastes amazing. It's the closest I've ever come to that yummy restaurant bread at home.

This would go great with a number of warm soups you make this fall and winter, but I will admit, it also tasted delicious toasted up in the morning for a hearty little breakfast treat. So look no further, I've done all the searching for you. Make this molassess bread and you won't regret it!
