Number of Servings: 30


    2 Packages Active Dry Yeast
    2 2/3 Cups Warm Water
    3/4 Cup Warm Water (105-115 degrees)
    1 1/5 Tablespoons Salt
    9-10 Cups White Flour
    1/4 Cup Sugar
    3 Tablespoons Shortening
    Soft margarine


Disolve yeast in 3/4 cup warm water. Stir in 2 2/3 cup warm water, sugar, salt, shortening, and 5 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

Turn dough onto lightly floured board; Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl and turn greased side up. Cover, let rise in warm place until double in size, about 1 hour.

Punch down dough; Divide in thirds. Roll each third into a rectangle, 18 X 9 inches. Roll up beginning at short side. With side of hand, press each end to seal. Fold ends under loaf. Place seam side down in greased loaf pan 9X5X3 inches. Brush loaves lightly with butter. Let rise until double, about 1 hour.

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place loaves on low rack so that tops of pans are in center of oven. Pans should not touch each other or sides of oven. Bake 30-35 minutes or until doop golden brown and loaves sound hollow when tapped.

Remove from pans. Brush loaves with butter. Cool. Slice each loaf into about 10 slices.
