Scald the milk with the lard then put in bread pan with the warm water; add the sugar, salt. Stir in flour to make a thick batter, the yeast cake that has been soaked well in water. I make sponge after dinner and let set till evening then mix into a large loaf; let stand till morning. Before breakfast knead into loaves. This will make from three to four loaves of bread.
