How to make White Bread


1 tablespoon lard
1 tablespoon butter
1½ teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup scalded milk
1 cup boiling water
1 yeast cake in ¼ cup lukewarm water
6 cups sifted flour

Method—Put lard, butter, salt and sugar into large bowl. Pour over them the scalded milk and boiling water. When this is lukewarm add the yeast cake dissolved in luke-warm water. Sift in flour gradually, beating with a spoon. Toss on a floured board and knead until smooth. Allow it to rise over night in a moderately warm place or until it doubles its original size. Cut down or knead and allow it to rise until light, then form into loaves or biscuits. Allow these to rise until light, then bake. The amount of yeast used will depend on the length of time the bread is allowed to rise.
