When the weather starts to change putting
a chill in the air, telling all Fall is here.
It makes me want to spend time in the kitchen baking.
I cant think of anything better than the smell of
fresh warm bread coming from the oven.
When you have the time to put into making
home baked bread this is the recipe you
want to have.
3 C. Milk
1/2 C. Shortening
1/2 C. Margarine
3/4 C. Sugar
3 TBSP. Yeast *( I use Red Star Brand)
1 TBSP. Salt
1/2 C. Warm Water
3 Lg. Eggland's Best Eggs -beaten
10-12 c. Bread Flour
In a Large Microwave safe bowl combine the milk, shortening,
margarine, salt and sugar. Heat until warm where the margarine
and shortening are almost melted.
Add in the beaten eggs stirring until all is smooth.
Pour into your mixing bowl to cool for a few minutes.
Next combine the warm water and yeast in a small bowl
to bloom for 5 minutes. Then add to the milk mixture.
Add in half of the flour, mix well. Then add in remaining
flour to make a soft dough. Mix again for another 5 minutes.
Turn out onto a floured surface. Knead out any air bubbles.
Place dough in a large greased bowl.
Spreading 2 TBSP. of oil to the top of the dough.
Cover with a light cloth or plastic wrap.
Let raise in a warm place until doubled in size.
Shape into rolls, place on greased pan to rise again.
Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
*If desire you can then brush melted butter over hot rolls.
