compressed fresh yeast
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
easy recipe for bread, i made it. i substituted a whole cup of sugar for the 3/4 cups, a stick of butter for the shortning, and poured in a little bit of corn oil. i used two packs of dry yeast in water with a teaspoon of sugar to get it all started. i liked the use of 4 cups of water, it made it very easy to stir in the flour a cup at a time, i blended everything until the blender wouldn't work it (about 6 or 8 cups of flour) and then started doing it by hand, made for very smooth dough. added a second stick of butter when baking to coat the tops of the rolls so they'd brown real nice. great recipe, thanks for sharing.
it is the best tasting bread ever. i can't make it fast enough. even though it is for a large amount already it still isn't enough! i substitute the shortening with a 1/3 cup of canola oil. it just makes the whole process a little faster. it doesn't change the flavor or texture.
This is a GREAT recipe!! I used two pkg of active dry yeast and started in one cup warm water with a tsp of sugar. I also added 1/4 c. honey, and 1/2 c. safflower oil instead of the shortening. I whisked in 7 cups, then stirred and stirred. I made three large loaves and 6 mini loaves, for those times when a tiny sandwich is just right :). Thanks!!
This recipe is wonderful!!! It was so easy to make and it freezes up very well too. Thanks so much for sharing it. I make it all the time now :)
Great recipe! followed exactly except for the flour, used only about 10 to 11 cups (all-purpose) and the loaves turned out beautiful and delicious. Thanks for the awesome recipe :)
thanks for posting this. my book is in pieces and really wanted to make bread like mom used to make..thanks
amazing bread, great for sandwiches and toast, sometimes i make 5 loaves and turn the final amount of dough into basic cinanmon rolls.
