Two Loaves of Wheat Bread


  • 2 cups of scalded milk or boiled water
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of sugar
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 yeastcake
  • well-dried flour, sifted (about seven cups)


To scalded milk or boiled water, in a mixing-bowl, add sugar, salt, and, when the liquid becomes lukewarm, the yeastcake dissolved in half a cup of water, boiled and cooled. With a broad-bladed knife cut and mix in enough well-dried flour, sifted, to make a stiff dough. Knead until the dough is elastic; cover, and set to rise in a temperature of about 70 F. When the dough has doubled in bulk, "cut down" and knead slightly without removing from the mixing-bowl. When again double in bulk, shape into two double loaves and set to rise in buttered pans; when it has risen a third time, bake one hour.
