A few of ya'll have asked about my homemade bread recipe. It's actually my mom's, and I'm happy to share!
2 c. milk
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. Crisco
2 pkg. yeast into 1/4 c. lukewarm water
Heat enough to melt shortening. Pour into crock and add 2 cups cold water. When lukewarm, pour in yeast mixture and add enough flour (around 6 cups) to make batter. Let rise (45 to 60 minutes).
Add to first mixture:
5 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Combine and add a little flour (1/2 cup). Stir well and add enough flour (1 to 2 cups) to make stiff dough. Put a couple of large mixing spoonfuls in each greased pan. Let rise (approx. 25 minutes).
Brush with melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn down to 300 and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Makes 3 to 4 loaves.
Let me know if you have any questions!
...pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
