Homemade Bread

Soak 1 package dry yeast in 1/4 cup lukewarm water.


Mix together:

  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 cup (scant) sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. meat drippings or melted shortening
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • Good pinch of ginger


Add yeast to flour mixture and add enough water to make it thin enough to beat air into it. Knead several times. Add 2 cup more flour, put in greased dish and let rise until over top of bowl. Punch down.


Second time it comes up, make out in pans. Bake in 300 degree F oven. The above recipe will make 2 loaves of bread and one pan of cinnamon rolls, 8x8 inch pan, or if you prefer same size pan of hot buns. Bake 30 minutes or until top of bread is nice and brown. (This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law. Her secret to good homemade bread was to bake it in a slow oven.)

Is there any liquid in this bread? Did not see it in the recipe.
