Granny Thompson's Yummy White Bread
My husbands mother made a very yummy white bread that
made delicious sandwiches.
I gained about five pounds after eating those sandwiches
for a week in high school :)
Here is a picture and the recipe.
2 pkg. yeast4 T melted cooled shortening
4 C flour (approximately)
2 1/2 c Warm Water
1/2 c Sugar
1 T Salt
Mix water, sugar and yeast in a hole made by
the flour and salt called a well.
Let rise and bubble
add cooled, melted shorting and lemon juice into the hole and
mix all together.
Add 3 more cups of flour a cup at a time until you have
a very soft dough.
Dump on a floured board and knead.
Put in an oiled bowl and flip to cover with oil and let raise.
She used shortening so you can do that if you want to,
Put into loaves and let rise again.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or so until golden brown.

Instead of the shortening I added 4 Tbs. of potato flakes
and I loved the results.
Try the potato flakes, you will love it!!
Now let your kids and their friends tear the top off, rip into chunks
and slather with butter.
That's what she did.:)
What great memories of
