This recipe makes 2 loaves
Ingredients
  • 6+1/2 cups Bread Flour
  • 3 TBSP Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Salt
  • 2 TBSP Shortening, soft
  • 3 cups Water
  • 4+1/2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
Instructions
  1. In large mixer bowl, combine 3+1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add warm water (120-130°F) and shortening to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened, beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover; let rise in warm place until double, about 30 minutes.

  2. Stir down batter. Spread in greased 9x5 or 8x4-inch bread pans. Cover; let rise in warm place until batter reaches top of pans, 20 to 30 minutes. Bake at 375°F for 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pans; brush with butter. Cool on wire rack.

  3. *You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) Yeast in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use ½ tsp Instant Yeast OR ¾ tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe.

  1. Easy, really good, one step different I did was did half of batter into pull rolls and topped with butter and garlic salt when popped out of the oven

  2. Gotta say……..EVERYONE told me how hard it is to make bread. NOT!!!!! I made this in less than TWO HOURS!!!! (BAKING AND ALL!!!) I SO remember my mother years ago slaving over her worktable making bread and occasionally rolls of different kinds. I grew up in a LARGE family of twelve children (YES 12!!!) and we almost never had much money and Mom’s baking day was a day we ALL lived for. FINALLY!!! I get to step back to my growing-up years and enjoy a treat I remember so well. With THIS recipe I will likely never buy bread from the store ever again.
