The BEST farmhouse Bread Recipe

Everyone that knows me, knows that I have a small obsession of making homemade Bread. I make it at least every 3 weeks, My husband loves it! I've even used it as a base for Cinnimon Raisin & Garlic Basil Bread! Or rolled it out as bread sticks & buns instead of loaves. The best part is that it Freezes sooo well! Its soo Easy Peasy that I thought that I'd share it with you! If you make it let me know what you think!!! ENJOY!

• 2 (1/4 ounce) packets yeast
• 1 cup warm water
• 2 tablespoons salt
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 6 tablespoons shortening
• 3 1/3 cups warm water
• 10-12 cups flour
Dissolve yeast and 1 cup warm water in a large mixing bowl. Let rest 10-15 minutes.
Add salt, sugar, shortening and 3 1/3 cups warm water.
Gradually mix in 10 cups of flour. Add up to 2 more cups until dough is no longer sticky.
Knead for 10 minutes. Cover the bowl and let rise for 1 hour until dough doubles in size.
Punch down dough, form into 4 loaves, place into loaf pans and let rise again until double in size(about an hour).
Place in preheated oven at 375 degrees and bake until golden brown (about 35 Minutes).

I freeze the extra loaves for later.

It was at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.It served as a hospital during World War II and as a VA Hospital and campus of the University of Miami medical school until 1968. Ohh! And did I mention that it’s haunted!!! Just take a look at my proof!!!
