How to Make my mom's homemade bread


  1. add water to very large bowl, mix in yeast, salt, oil, sugar. stir to blend well. add a little flour a time. when dough is started it will be sticky,put on floure counter and start to knead bread dough adding a little flour until the dough is not sticking to your hands.
  2. with shortening on a paper towel grease your large bowl. put dough in bowl and turn once so the shortening is on all sides. cover with a kitchen towel. put in warm place until doubled. (i put a cover on bowl and set in a sink with very warm water. it seems to rise faster)
  3. divide dough into 6 portions. you can put some in greased loaf pans and/or make 12 rolls out of each portion. let raise until doubled.
  4. put bread and rolls in 350 degree oven. bake until golden brown. the bread will be done done if when tap it you can hear a hollow sound. when you take bread or rolls out of oven take a stick of margarine and coat on all sides.(this keeps the crust softer)
