Put quick oats in bowel and cover with boiling water; do not stir. Mix in shortening, molasses, sugar and salt. Let cool, about 1 hour. Only occasionally, stir to speed cooling process. When mixture is cool, in a separate bowl, dissolve yeast in lukewarm water with sugar - should be bubbly. Stir about 2-3 minutes. Add to cool mixture. Add flour. Mix in. Let stand 2-3 hours in a warm placed covered with a tea-towel. I do not use stove top, just keep out of draft. The dough should double in size.
Place on well-floured table and knead. Dough should be sticky, can add more flour if really sticky. Knead for about 5 minutes, dough must be sticky still or else bread will be dry. Form dough into loaves, about 1/2 way up the pan. Put tea towel over pans and let stand. Dough should double in size again in about 45 minutes. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes (check at 20-25 minutes). Leave in pan for 5 minutes, place on wire rack to cool
Get the yeast water at the right temperature and yeast at room temperature, or all is lost. Use the most flavorful molasses you can get.
