Their site keeps timing out, so I figured that I would help and give their link. 🙂
DEPRESSION ERA BREAD – 3 INGREDIENTS
- 5 lb bag All- purpose flour
- 5 TBS Yeast I used Rapid-Rise yeast
- 6 Tsp Salt optional, but I think it added flavor to the bread
- 6 cups warm water more or less depending on your dough
- Pour flour in a large bowl.
- Make a well in the center of the flour.
- Add yeast to well and then add enough of the water to the well to dissolve the yeast (you can use your hands).
- After yeast is dissolved start adding more water and mixing in flour until you form a dough.
- Knead dough in the bowl for a bit. Let the dough rise in a warm place with a towel loosely covering the top.
- After it has risen double in size, punch down the dough and divide it up into 7 loaves.
- Shape the dough loaves and put in loaf pans. If you do not have 7 pans, use a cookie sheet and the loaves will come out just as nice fine.
- Let the dough rise for 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
- Make slits in the top of the dough to make it look pretty.
- Bake at 350° until it gets brown on top, about 25 minutes (this will vary a bit based on your oven).
