White Bread


  • 1 pint of milk
  • 3 tablespoons of lard
  • 1 quart of warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • flour
  • 1 yeast cake


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.
