Good ole White Bread
2 cups milk
5 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp salt
2 pkgs (1/4oz ea.) dry yeast
2 cups lukewarm water
12-13 cups sifted flour
5 Tbsp melted shortening
Scald milk, add sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast
in lukewarm water and add to lukewarm milk. Add 1/2 of the
flour and beat until smooth. Add melted shortening and remaining
flour or enough to make easily handled dough. Knead dough quickly
and lightly until smooth and elastic..about 5 minutes. Place
dough in greased bowl, cover and put in warm place free of draft.
Let rise until doubled in size, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
divide into 4 equal portions and shape into loaves. Place in greased
pans. I sometimes sprinkle the inside of pans with sesame seeds.
Cover and let rise again until double, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
Bake in hot oven 425 degrees for 15 minutes and then reduce
heat to 375 degrees and finish baking, about 30 minutes longer
If the bread browns too fast put foil on top for the last 15 mins.
