If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

White bread (untested)

This recipe is written in ballpoint pen in my mom's handwriting (my Grammy's daughter, Sue). I remember this recipe growing up. I loved the smell of the hot bread as it came out of the oven. My mom would let me have a hot slice with butter on it and the flavor was heavenly.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup margarine or oil [I'd use butter]
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 package yeast
  • 6 cups flour

  • Scald milk
  • Stir in sugar, salt, and margarine/oil/butter [I'd use butter]
  • Cool milk mixture to lukewarm
  • Measure warm water into a separate bowl
  • Sprinkle in the yeast
  • Stir until yeast is dissolved
  • Stir yeast mixture into milk mixture
  • Add 3 cups of the flour
  • Beat until smooth
  • Stir in additional 3 cups of flour
  • Turn out onto floured board
  • Knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes)
  • Place in greased bowl
  • Brush with fat and cover
  • Let rise in warm place until doubled (about 1 hour)
  • Punch down
  • Turn out on board
  • Divide in half
  • Let rise for 15-20 minutes
  • Shape into loaves in greased 9-inch by 5-inch by 3-inch pans (or shape into rolls)
  • Cover and let rise until center of the dough is 1 inch above the edge of the pan (about 1 hour)
  • Bake at 357°F for 30 minutes (25 minutes for rolls)
  • Brush with melted butter
