Batterway White Bread
A quick and easy white bread with no kneading required. It will have a more open texture.

This recipe makes 2 loaves
  • 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
  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. 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.

  2. 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
