How to Bake Bread | DoItYourself.com

This recipe will make four nice fat bread rolls or five smaller buns that will fit in the toaster. It has been unchanged for at least four generations, and it can keep the whole family chewing happily for weeks or sell as many as you bake when you take them to a fundraiser or market.

This recipe contains a lot of flour to mix with other ingredients, so a larger bowl makes it easier to work with. An electric hand mixer is used to prepare this bread, but a stand mixer may be another alternative with more power to handle the dense mix. The electric hand mixer used here was chosen for its power rating and its wire cutter, which creates less pull through the dough.

Step 1

– Assemble the ingredients

The first thing to do is to get all the ingredients together in the right quantities:

11 cups flour with full use

1/2 cup granulated sugar [19659006] 1 tbsp salt

4 1/2 teaspoon (2 pkg) dry yeast

2/3 Cup hot water

1 teaspoon sugar

4 cups water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 Well beaten eggs

Step 2 – Put together the dry ingredients

Use a 13-inch large bowl and combine flour, sugar and salt and mix well, as shown in Figure 1. When this is done, hold the bowl at its sides and hit it on the countertop to smooth it out and unpack it (Figure 2). It can then be set aside for step 5.

Step 3 – Beat the Eggs

A small mixing bowl can be used to beat an egg properly with the electric mixer. It can then be set aside for step 6.

Step 4 – Prepare yeast

A medium sized bowl is needed to dissolve the yeast in 2/3 cups of warm water and a teaspoon of sugar (Figure 3). Yeast tends to rise faster in a warm environment, in about 10 minutes when conveniently placed in front of a large sunny window.
