Milk and Water Bread


  • 1 cup scalded milk
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon lard
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 yeast cake dissolved in 1/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 6 cups sifted flour


Prepare and bake as water bread. Bread may be mixed, raised, and baked in five hours, by using one yeast cake. Bread made in this way has proved most satisfactory. It is usually mixed in the morning, and the cook is able to watch the dough while rising and keep it at uniform temperature. It is often desirable to place bowl containing dough in pan of water, keeping water at uniform temperature of from 95° to 100° F.
