White Bread

This recipe makes 3 loaves of delish white bread. I have made this recipe a couple of times and I'm impressed with how moist it stays.

Recipe from: The Sister's Cafe

1/3 cup powdered milk *see note
1 1/2 heaping Tbsp of instant yeast
3 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp shortening
3 cups warm water
Flour (approx. 7 1/2 cups total)

Mix powdered milk, yeast, salt, sugar, and shortening in large mixer. Add warm water. Add about 4 to 5 cups flour and beat until well mixed. Add flour slowly until dough comes away clean from the edge of the mixing bowl. Allow to knead for 5 more minutes. Do not add too much flour. Cover with towel and allow dough to rise. Once it has doubled in size, divide into 3 parts. Form each into a log, tucking and pinching the dough underneath to make it smooth on top. (This is easily done if you lightly roll out the dough and roll up lengthwise, pinching together seam and tucking in the ends.) Place each into a greased loaf pan and raise until the size of a bread loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 3 loaves.

*fresh milk works too. Just omit powdered milk and use 1 1/2 cups warm milk and 1 1/2 cups warm water in the place of the 3 cups warm water.
