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.

Whole wheat bread (untested)

This typewritten recipe is missing the measurement for flour and the instructions for that section recipe. I don't know why. Maybe Grammy (or her friend who typed this recipe for her) accidentally skipped over it during typing. Until Hubby and I get a chance to test this recipe, this crucial section of the recipe will have to remain a mystery.

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 1/2 cups warm (not hot) water
  • 2 packages or cakes of yeast (active dry or compressed)
  • [it appears that the flour measurement is missing off this recipe]

  1. Scald milk
  2. Stir in sugar, salt, shortening and molasses
  3. Cool to lukewarm
  4. In a separate bowl, sprinkle or crumble yeast into warm water
  5. Stir until dissolved
  6. Stir yeast mixture into lukewarm milk mixture
  7. [instructions regarding flour appear to be missing at this point]
  8. Beat until smooth
  9. Stir in remaining flour mixture
  10. Turn dough out on lightly floured board
  11. Knead until smooth and elastic
  12. Place in greased bowl
  13. Brush top of dough with soft shortening
  14. Cover
  15. Let rise in warm place (free from draft) until doubled in bulk (about 1 hour and 15 minutes)
  16. Punch down and turn out on lightly floured board
  17. Divide in half
  18. Shape into loaves
  19. Place in greased 9-inch by 5-inch by 3-inch bread pans
  20. Cover and let rise in warm place (free from draft) until center is slightly higher than the edge of the pan (about 1 hour)
  21. Bake in hot oven at 400°F for about 50 minutes
