HOMEMADE LOAF BREAD
Breads
Contributed by:
Ingredients:
  • 2 packages yeast
  • About 6 TBS sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 pints lukewarm water
  • 13/4 TBS salt
  • 5 to 6 TBS shortening
  • All-purpose flour (may be at least four cups)
Dissolve yeast and 1 tsp. sugar into 3?4 cup lukewarm water.
In a large mixing bowl, pour 2 pints lukewarm water, 5 or 6 TBS sugar, salt and shortening.
When the yeasty liquid begins to bubble (about 5 or 10 minutes), pour it into the liquids in the large mixing bowl and stir gently. Add enough sifted flour to make a stiff dough.
Place dough on a board and knead until it is no longer sticky (about 10 to 15 minutes). Allow the dough to rise until it is about double in bulk. Punch it down and form it into four loaves. Place each loaf into a greased loaf pan and let rise again. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees, then 30 to 40 minutes at 375 degrees.
