Hot Homemade Bread

1 Tbsp. salt
3 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup shortening or oil
3 3/4 cup warm water
6 cups flour (approx. 10 cups total)

Dissolve 2 Tbsp. yeast in
1/2 cup warm water (additional to above water)

Mix dry ingredients together, then cut in shortening (or add oil). Add yeast and warm water mixture. Mix till smooth.

Add last 4 cups flour. Knead 8 min. till smooth. Divide into 3 large or 4 medium balls. Let rest 10 min. Form into loaves and place into greased bread pans. Let rise till very rounded.

Bake at 400 for 30 min. (I cover with foil the last 10 min. if I think of it and the tops are getting dark).

This is the quickest homemade bread recipe I have tried (it's from Wade's mom). The bubbles in the bread are bigger than average and it's just delicious. There is a reason the salt is first. I forget it about twice a year! So don't forget the salt.
