Years ago, shortly after Terry & I were married, we made friends with another couple. So far back, I do not remember their names. Had to be around '75 or so. Anywho, we went to their house for supper and to play pitch. They had made homemade bread for supper and that was the best bread I had ever ate. He had made it and wrote the recipe down for us. We used that recipe from then on until the recipe 'disappeared'. We looked everywhere for it. Spoke about it several times as it was the way he wrote it out that stuck with us.

Here's a scan of it and a rewritten copy for anyone interested. It makes real good rolls and bread!

Several years ago I got a recipe program from a shareware site.  We made the donation and registered the program and get free updates for life.  Super easy program to use and include a place for photos of each recipe, meal planning etc.  My "cook" love it and uses it all the time.  She gets the one she wants, prints it out and starts to cooking.  Never have to find it in a book or remember which book it was in (She has about 50 or more). 

 

It is supported and published by Mountain Software.  Home Cooking is the name of it.  He has a few others  Try it, you will like it.  Never a lost recipe again.

The bake time cannot be right. Use a normal bread baking time, please. I have looked at the original and it definitely says 15 minutes.

When I used to make bread , I liked to do it when I was angry---Beating the hell out of it lowered my stress level.

Sounds like a good recipe to me.

That time would be good for rolls maybe but not for a loaf.

 Anywho, we went to their house for supper and to play pitch.

 


I haven't played Pitch for years.   Used to be a favorite at my grandparents. Along with Eucher.     Rick

You play pitch ?   If I go more than twenty miles from the town I was born in its darn near impossible to find anyone who even knows what it is.  Anyone else on this forum a pitch player?  Oh and your bread sounds good too.  I have done a lot of cooking but I don't think I ever made any bread..

I'm a bread maker, and that recipe has a TON of yeast in it, holy moly!! That is a standard white bread except for the yeast amount. Nothing wrong with that much yeast, I love the smell and taste of a good yeasty bread, ohhhh yummy!! The more you knead the dough and get the air out, the smaller the bubbles and smoother the texture of the loaf.
You dont want to be in a rush making bread...
