Homemade bread

I (Kara) do not know if I have ever made homemade white bread, but this was delicious (especially slathered in butter and jam!). We were all out of wheat and we just don't like store bought bread, so I thought it wouldn't kill us to eat a couple loaves of white! It really was so yummy, it is not something I will make every week, but will make again when the craving for toast, butter, and jam comes!

Homemade White Bread

2/3 cup powdered milk
3 heaping Tbsp of instant yeast
6 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
6 Tbsp shortening
6 cups warm water
Flour (approx. 15 cups total)

Mix powdered milk, yeast, salt, sugar, and shortening in large mixer. (*your Kitchen Aid is not big enough! It will handle a half recipe though.) Add warm water. Add about 4 to 5 cups flour and beat with paddle attachment until well mixed. Change to bread hook and 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 greased plastic and allow dough to rise. Once it has doubled in size, divide into 6 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.) Raise until the size of a bread loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
