Pantry Secrets Bread Recipe
10 1/2 cups white unbleached bread flour (You can do 1/2 wheat flour if you prefer.)
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon salt
3 rounded Tablespoons instant yeast
3 Tablespoons liquid lecithin* (see note below!!!)
4 cups hot tap water
Mix dry ingredients. Add lecithin and water. Mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry, add more water. If dough is too moist, add more flour. Mix for 5 minutes. (Do not add water or flour to the dough after it has finished mixing.) Spray counter and pans with cooking spray. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Let rise 25 minutes. Bake at 350* for 25 minutes.
Recipe makes 4 loaves.
Unraised loaves can be frozen for later use. My mixer only allows me to mix 2 loaves at a time, so I half the recipe when I make it.
*Squeeze or pour approximately 3 tablespoons (size of quarters to a half dollar) of lecithin directly into the bowl. Do not measure. It won't come off the spoon!
You can buy your lecithin from Pantry Secrets!
