  1. Add warm water, sugar, shortening, salt & yeast to mixing bowl..

  2. mix 3 minutes with regular beaters.. sift all of your flour and add 3 cups of flour and mix well... remove beaters and attach the dough hooks and then gradually add the rest of the flour..

  3. I have found on rainy days it takes a little bit more flour..

  4. after it is thoroughly mixed I let it raise right in the mixing bowl..when it has not quite doubled I start the mixer on low and let it mix for a couple minutes and then pour it out into a greased bowl, cover it and let it rise double.. then divide into loafs and let rise again and bake..

  5. 0* for about 30 minutes.. ovens vary so I take it out when it is golden brown.. I brush the top with a little butter..
