Bread (Made With Dry Yeast) (2 Loaves)


  • 2 cupfuls water
  • 1/2 cake dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoonfuls salt
  • 2 teaspoonfuls sugar
  • 1 tablespoonful fat
  • 6 cupfuls (or more) bread flour


Soak the yeast in the water (lukewarm) until softened. Then add the salt, sugar, and fat. Stir until the salt and sugar are dissolved, and the fat is melted. Add one half the given quantity of flour. Beat until the mixture is smooth; cover. Let rise until very porous and foamy. Add enough flour to make a stiff dough; knead; and allow to rise until doubled in bulk. Proceed as for bread made with compressed yeast.
