Milk Bread
4 c of scalded milk
1 1/2 c shortening
3 tbs salt
1 tbs of sugar
1/2 c lukewarm water
1 1/2 yeast cakes
11 to 12 c of flour

Dissolve the yeast in the 1/2 cup of lukewarm water. Add shortening, sugar, and salt to scalded milk. Add softened yeast to milk after it has cooled to room temperature. Add flour gradually, making a dough stiff enough so that it can be easily handled. Knead dough quickly and lightly until it is smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl, cover and set in a warm place to rise. Let dough rise until double in size. Shape into 3 large or
4 medium size loaves. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until tops are light golden brown.
