This recipe came from R.C. Bair, a lady that I grew up with that still bakes bread all the time. I'm not much of a bread baker but I should give it a try more often :) This recipe is easy and really good! I used fresh ground whole wheat flour but white flour works as well.
6 T. sugar
1 T. saf-instant yeast
6 T. shortening or softened margarine
7 cups flour
1 12 oz. can evaporated milk plus enough warm water to equal 5 cups liquid.
Measure the above ingredients into a mixer. Mix for several minutes, then add 1 T. salt and additional flour until dough pulls away from sides of the mixing bowl. (Approx. 4-7 more cups depending on flour and consistency). Let rise until double in size. Dive into 4 equal parts. Place in greased bread pans. Let rise again and then bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
