But back to the wheat; My aunt recently gave me my grandmother's bread recipe and it has quickly become a staple in our house. It is modifies well and can be used to make pizza dough as well.
Grandma Fern's Bread
8-8 1/2 cups all purpose flour
8 tsp aluminum free baking powder
4 pkgs red star instant blend dry yeast
3/4 cups sugar
1 Tbsp salt & 1 tsp
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
1 stick butter
Combine all dry ingredients (use only 6 cups flour-put other 2 1/2 cups on counter for kneading). Put butter and milk in pan and just warm. Add all liquid and eggs to flour. Knead on counter until firm, working in extra 2 1/2 cups flour. Oil large bowl and put dough in. Turn to oil all sides. let rise 90 minutes or until double. Punch down and cut into 3 sections and put in greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
