2 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tabs. of shortening
1 Tab. salt
2 Tabs. yeast
6 cups of flour. (She has a note that says to NEVER add anymore flour.)
(You read right...this recipe doesn't call for eggs!)
Mix together. I normally heat my water a tad (but not too hot) to stir in my shortening and yeast, then add the rest of the ingredients. Knead in the flour at the end.
Let rise 1 hour or until doubled, then put into 2 loaf pans.
Let rise another hour and bake at 325 for 25-30 mins.
~I used honey instead of sugar.
~I used 2 cups of whole wheat flour, the rest white flour.
~Spread a thin layer of softened cream cheese on top of each loaf and sprinkle with whole wheat flour (loaf on left) or Parmesan cheese (loaf on right.)
Yum! Yum! Slather a slice of this fresh bread with butter, apple butter, honey, or jelly...
And as Always...ENJOY!
