¼ cup light molasses
1½ teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
¼ cup warm water (105 to 115F)
1 package active dry yeast
4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon soft butter or margarine

1.                  In medium bowl, pour boiling water over oats.  Add molasses, salt, and 3 tablespoons butter, stirring to mix well; cool.
