What type of bread is that, you ask? It is my first successful loaf of bread that I made last week. Oh does success taste sweet. Savannah gave me permission to share her recipes, but if you want to recipe for the egg in the hole breakfast, you'll have to subscribe to Taproot. There's nothing like a breakfast made from scratch!
Grandma Alice's White Bread
1 pk. yeast
2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
1/3 cups fat (I used shortening)
1/3 cup dry egg (I used 1 egg)
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk (I used skim milk)
7- 7 1/2 cups flour
Soften yeast in water. Stir in sugar, salt, and fat. Add dry egg, milk, and 6 cups flour. Stir until will mixed. Knead until smooth- adding flour as needed. (I used the mixer with a dough hook.) Place in greased bowl. [Grease?] top of dough. (I can't read her writing. Maybe an experienced bread maker can clarify.) Cover. Let rise (almost 2-3 hours.) Punch down. Allow 15 minutes rest. Shape and pat into greased bread pans. (Alice's son Stan said that the bread should rise 2 more hours at this point.) Bake 400 degrees- 40 minutes.
Italics are my comments.
