Milk and Water Bread 1 cup scalded milk
1 yeast cake dissolved in
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup lukewarm water 1 tablespoon lard
6 cups sifted flour, or one cup white flour and enough entire wheat flour to knead 1 tablespoon butter
21/2 teaspoon salt
Prepare and bake as Water Bread. When entire wheat flour is used add three tablespoons molasses. Bread may be mixed, raised, and baked in five hours, by using one yeast cake.
Bread made in this way has proved most satisfactory. It is usually mixed in the morning, and the cook is able to watch the dough while rising and keep it at uniform temperature. It is often desirable to place bowl containing dough in pan of water, keeping water at uniform temperature of from
to 100° F. Cooks who have not proved themselves satisfactory bread makers are successful when employing this method.
