DEPRESSION ERA BREAD - 3 INGREDIENTS

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

Instructions

  • 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).
