  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110 )
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons sugar

Brown Butter Glaze

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Bread: Dissolve yeast in water. Add shortening, sugar, egg, cocoa, salt and 1 cup of the flour. Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed of mixer, scraping bowl frequently.
  2. Stir in remaining flour and oats and blend until smooth. Scrape batter from sides of bowl and cover bowl. Let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.

Shape each into a ball, roll in butter and then in cinnamon and sugar which have been blended together. Place balls of dough next to each other in a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Cover. Let rise until double in bulk (about 40 minutes).
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan immediately. Cool.
  6. Brown Butter Glaze: Brown butter in a saucepan over medium heat until a delicate brown.
  7. Blend in remaining ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cooled loaf.
