Serves 6 loaves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/2 cup oil
6 cups warm water
2 tbsp salt
4 tbsp honey or sugar
3 tbsp yeast*
10 cups flour**

I have a bread mixer and start mixing it first by adding the flour a

little at a time until it gets the right consistency. You have to add

maybe as much as 6 more cups of flour or even 8 cups. I usually mix it on

the bread mixer for about 10 minutes sometimes not as long. Leave your

bread pan and let it rise in a warm place until it almost goes over our

pan. Then punch it down good an mix a few more stokes and let it rise a

second time and then put it out in 6 greased loaf tins and let it rise

about 10 minutes more while you get your oven ready to cook it at 350

degrees for an hour.

* I use yeast I get from the health food store and you don't have to mix

it with water and a teaspoon of sugar ahead of time and let it get start

to bubble good.

** I use 1 cup of wheat germ, 1 cup rye or soy bean flour or both. Count

these as part of the 10 cups of flour.
