I have this old cookbook my mother created. She told me that this was a school project for Home Ec. I want to capture the recipes contained in the cookbook before they are lost for ever. I have captured the original recipe in her hand writing.
The original recipes don’t provide complete instructions. I’ve interpreted what I could. I hope to recreate the recipe in the near future. I will post updates to the recipe after I’ve had a chance to recreate it.
Yeast Bread Recipe from My mother's cookbook
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 yeast cake or 2/12 tbps of instant yeast
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cup water boiling
- 9 cups flour sifted twice
- Let rise overnight. In the morning stir for 8 minutes. Let rise again for 4 minutes then bake.°
Yeast cake equivalent is 2 1/2 tbsp of yeast. Assuming that this is baked @ 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes
