How to Make Traditional White Bread

Step-by-Step

  2. Stir in shortening and salt and 2 cups of the flour.
  3. Stir in remaining flour a 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. When dough has pulled together, turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 min.
  5. Lightly oil a large bowl, place dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1 hour)
  6. Deflate the dough and turn onto floured surface, divide into 2 equal pieces and form into loaves. Let rise until doubled in size.
