Ingredients:  
3 1/2 c. warm water
2 pkgs. dry yeast
2 - 3 tbsp. oil

10 1/2 - 11 1/2 c. flour (I use unbleached)

Directions:
Put 2 cups warm water in large bowl. Add oil, salt and sugar or honey. In the remaining warm water, stir in 1/2 tsp sugar or honey and add yeast. let set 3 - 5 minutes and add this to first mixture. Stir and add flour, first about 3 cups and beat well. Then add one cup or less at a time and beat well. When fairly stiff, turn onto floured board and kneed until smooth and elastic, about 10 - 15 minutes. Return to bowl, grease top. Cover and let rise until double in bulk, about 1 1/2 hr. in warm place.
Punch down, kneed lightly 2 - 3 minutes. Shape into loaves and place in 3 - 9x5x3 inch pans. (There should be enough to make 3 loaves plus enough to make one small loat to eat with butter while warm.)
Cover and let rise until even with top of pan, about 30 minutes. Turn oven to 400 and place in oven right away. Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown.

This was Josephine Pinkert's (Herb's Mother) recipe. Everyone waited in line for Grandma Pinkert to take bread out of the oven!
