Bread Recipe



White bread. . .

Place ingredients in mixing bowl in the order given (yeast must be on top of the flour!)

1/4 cup milk powder (I used actual milk because I didn’t have milk powder, but it does change how much flour you use. You’ll need more)

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup shortening

1 tablespoon salt

1 egg

2 1/2 cups hot water

5 cups flour ( you can add 1 or more cups if needed)

2 tablespoons quick rise (instant) yeast

Start mixing with 5 cups of flour and add more flour until desired consistency is reached ( soft but not sticky)

Beat on med/high for 5 minutes (this eliminates the need to knead by hand!)

Remove bowl from mixer and cover with a clean cloth. Let rise for 30-45 minutes (I usually go for the full 45 minutes)

Punch down. Form three balls and let rest on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes,

Form three loaves of bread or 30 buns. (this dough could also be used to make cinnamon buns)

Let rise for 30-45 minutes.

Bake for 15-18 minutes at 375 degrees F.



*And Chandra, the loaf pans are not doubled. These are the new ones I bought. They are Wilton brand 21.6×11.4×6.35 cm / 8.5×4.5×2.5 inches.

They work very well.

Any one notice how I used the same pictures as yesterday? Tricky aren’t I?
