Bread without Kneading
(Makes 7 Loaves)
5 lb. flour
2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. salt
2 pkg. dry yeast
7 c. water
1 1/2 c. Crisco
NOTE: This is a never fail recipe. It's a good basic recipe
for cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, etc. Absolutely no kneading.
The night before, using a very large turkey roaster or canning kettle, mix flour, sugar,
salt and Crisco with hands until cornbread consistency. Dissolve 2 packages yeast
in 2 cups warm water. Add yeast water to flour mixture. Add 5 cups cold
water; mix thoroughly with hands. Cover and let rise overnight. Next morning, spoon dough into 7 greased bread pans. Pat into loaf with floured hands. Let rise for
approximately 3 hours. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
