Bake

Ingredients

2 pkg
active dry yeast
3/4 c
warm water (about 110 degrees)
2 c
lukewarm milk, scalded and cooled
3 Tbsp
sugar
3 Tbsp
shortening
1 Tbsp
salt
7 - 8 c
flour
margarine, softened

Step-By-Step

1Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl.

2Stir in milk, sugar, shortening, salt, and 4 cups of flour. Beat with electric mixer til smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

3Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth & elastic, about 10 minutes.

4Place in greased bowl. Turn greased side up and place in warm area until double in size. Test dough by pushing 2 fingers into the dough about 1 inch. Dough is ready when finger marks stay.

5Divide in half and roll dough into a rectangle about 8 x 12 inches. Beginning on long side, roll dough snugly into a roll. Pinch edge of dough to seal and fold ends under. Place loaves seam side down in greased loaf pans and let rise til double.

6Preheat oven to 325. Bake until golden brown and sounds hollow when thumped, about 40 minutes.

7Remove from pans immediately, brush top with margarine and cool on wire racks.
