Shredded Wheat Bread


  • 2 shredded wheat biscuit
  • 1 cup hot milk
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1/2 yeast cake
  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 6 cups entire wheat flour


Crumble the biscuit; add milk, water, molasses, salt, and shortening; when lukewarm add yeast cake dissolved in lukewarm water, and sifted flour; knead well, cover and let rise until double in bulk; cut down, shape into loaves or biscuit, put into greased pans, let rise until light, and bake in a hot oven about fifty minutes for loaves, and twenty-five minutes for biscuit. This makes one loaf and one pan of biscuit. A little more or less flour may be needed.
