Sunny Boy Homestyle Bread
A slightly sweet, rich, traditional loaf made using Sunny Boy Organic Unbleached Flour.
- 6 cups (1500 ml) Sunny Boy Organic Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) active dry yeast
- 3 cups (750 ml) milk
- ⅓ cup (85 ml) brown sugar
- 2 tsp (10 ml) salt
- 3 tbsp (45 ml) liquid vegetable shortening
Place the yeast and 3 cups of the flour into a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, sugar, shortening and salt and mix well. Warm this liquid mixture, then add to the above dry ingredients. Beat for 3 minutes, until smooth, and then slowly add the remaining 3 cups of flour.
Turn the dough on to a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.
Form dough into a ball and place into a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size—approximately 40 minutes.
When dough is ready, punch down, divide in half and form two balls. Let rest for 10 minutes.
Shape into two loaves and place in bread pans. Cover and let bread loaves rise in a warm place until doubled in size—approximately 30 minutes.
Bake in a preheated oven at 400° F (200°C) on a center rack for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350°F (180°C), then bake for 25 minutes. Remove bread from hot pans and place on a wire rack to cool.
