There are 2 regular loaves of bread - one is quite small, also 4 loaves of sub sandwich bread (hoagie bread) and a braided loaf experiment, just for fun. :)
By the way, this is an extra large batch of bread.... the recipe below would need to be doubled to do this much.
Homemade Sub Sandwiches
Homemade Breadsticks With Herbed Butter
Basic Homemade Bread Recipe
3 pkgs yeast (3 Tablespoons)
10-14 cups flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 cups very warm water (120-130 degrees)
I use an Electrolux mixer and I put the 10 cups of flour, yeast, salt in the bowl and stir with a spoon. Then add the butter and water (If you want to add other ingredients to make special breads, do it here.) and turn the mixer on.... mixing with the dough hook and adding more flour until dough isn't too sticky (the amount varies depending on many things and you get used to how much flour you like).... then knead it in the mixer for about 2-4 more minutes.
Let rise in the bowl. After it rises, shape into loaves and put into greased loaf pans. Let rise again. Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Remove from pans right away and cool on wire racks... cover the bread with a dish towel while cooling, to hold in moisture. Enjoy. Note: hot bread with butter tastes great - and hot bread with butter and jam tastes even better!!! :)
Makes 4 loaves.
