Baking :)

Irene’s bread recipe

Dry ingredients: mix together:
5 cups of all purpose flour + 2 more cups after it is mixed
1 cup sugar
1 cup potato flakes
1 cup powdered milk
2 tsp salt
2 Tbs yeast

Wet ingredients:
4 cups of water
1 stick of butter
3 eggs
2 tsps Vanilla

Throw all of the dry ingredients into the bread mixer, mix up. Mix up all the wet ingredients (melt butter). Slowly add wet to dry with mixer going. Let mix for a couple minutes. Slowly add 2 more cups of flour. Mix for 5 minutes. It is a very wet/sticky dough. Wet your hands with water to handle it so it won’t stick to you.

Let dough rise for an hour (or overnight in the fridge)

Roll it out into what you want to use it for – let raise another 30-40 minutes.

Bake 350° for 20-30 minutes (depending on the pan/loaf etc. used)

Use bread – as hamburger buns, sloppy Joe buns, wrap bread around little hot dogs + cheese, all variety of sandwiches, etc. etc. etc. You can also use this for cinnamon rolls – just roll out, add cinnamon/sugar, roll up, and cook like a cinnamon roll!
