In a large bowl add:

  • 3 cups really warm water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yeast or 2 yeast packets

Dissolve and wait until yeast froths then add:


  • Add flour a cup at a time until you have a soft dough. Knead and put into a bowl. 
  • Cover with a cloth and let raise about an hour or until it has about doubled in size. (It raises much better if you put in front of a window with the sun shining in or on top of a warm oven).
  • Knead again and place bread into baking tins and raise again for another hour.
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until brown on the top. Butter the top of the bread while still in the oven and let cook another 2 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool about 10 minutes in the pans. Turn out and cool for 10 more minutes before slicing.


This recipe makes 3 regular or 2 large loaves of bread.  A regular loaf provides approximately 12 slices, a large loaf provides 16-18 slices.
