Grandma Allen's White Bread
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Servings: 6 loaves
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 6 cups warm water
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 4 tbsp honey or sugar
  • 3 tbsp yeast*
  • 10 cups flour**
DIRECTIONS
  1. 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.
  2. * 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.
  3. ** 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.
