Oatmeal Bread

This recipe is from my mother-in-law and it is a family favorite. It is sweet and cinnamony (that should be a word!) It's always moist and delicious. Of course it's delicious with butter on it too but it's also wonderful all by itself! It does tend to fall apart a little when you eat it and that's normal. It's just the kind of bread it is :)

1 cup quick oatmeal
1 1/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. soda

Combine oatmeal and boiling water - mix and allow to cool.
Combine remaining ingredients with oatmeal mixture - mix well.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. I like to use slightly smaller loaf pans (3 1/2 x 7 1/2) and make 2 loaves. This also works to make one large one.
