Category: Breads, Yeast

 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk Dry yeast
  • 1 c Warm water --105° to 115°
  • 3 tb Sugar
  • 2 tb Shortening
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 ts Salt


3 1/2 c c all-purpose flour; up to 3

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
Add sugar, shortening, egg, salt, and half of flour; beat at low speed of
an electric mixer until smooth. Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to
make a soft dough.

Place dough in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let
rise in a warm place (85°F), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in
bulk, or cover and refrigerate up to 5 days. (If refrigerated, let return
to room temperature before proceeding.)

Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 4 or 5
times. Shape and bake as directed.
