No Knead Bread

No Knead Bread
my favorite basic bread recipe

1 ½ c scalded milk

½ c shortening

½ c sugar

1 tbsp salt

3 packets yeast

3 eggs

9 cups flour (white tastes best but whole wheat works too. I tend to use half and half)

  • Combine milk, shortening, sugar and salt.
  • While mixing, add 1 ½ c cold water to cool mixture to room temperature
  • Add yeast – mix well
  • Add eggs – mix well
  • Add flour slowly – 1 cup at a time – allow to fully mix in before adding the next cup and mix till smooth
  • You can knead the dough at this point but it’s not required
  • Shape in to 3 loaves and place in greased bread pans (9x4x3)
  • Let rise to double, about 1 hour
  • Bake at 375 for 1 hour or until it sounds hollow when you tap the bottom and the top is browned
  • Dough can be chilled over night – let rise 2 hours

Good things you can add before baking:

Savory spices, cheese, cinnamon and raisins, seeds
