Good Ole White Bread

Good Ole White Bread

Good Ole White Bread       The way my mom made it.  Yum Yum...

        6 cups hot water

        3/4 cup Crisco or butter,  Mom used Crisco
        1 cup sugar
        1 tablespoon salt
        1/4 cup Saf instant Yeast
        About 18 cups Natural White Flour  Wheat Montana's is great
In Bosch Mixer, (Mom did it by hand it and it took hours to do) place all ingredients using only half the flour and placing the yeast on top of the flour.  Turn on mixer and kneed  adding more flour until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl..  Mix 6 minutes and than turn off mixer and remove from bowl.  For fluffier bread let rise once in a oiled bowl.  Punch down and divide into 2 lb. loaves and place in oiled pans.  Let rise until double.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes or until done.  Remove from the oven and eat right away topped off with lots of butter and fresh jam.

  1. Brad- I am green with envy regarding this Bosch mixer. I have a bread machine and am wondering if you would change this recipe using a bread machine to knead but not bake? Thanks
