Directions:
Stir flour into liquid mixture. Set aside another 7 cups(approximately) white flour to knead into the bread.

Flour board, dump mixture out and start working in the 7 cups of flour. Work until it feels right (that is what Grandma Okie would say.) OK...Start kneading by lifting outside edge of bread to center. Keep working and start to knead. Knead until bread is just past sticky stage and is slightly elastic. Put in large bowl (Grandma's big green bowl) and let double in size. Punch down, dump out, knead lightly. Divide into 5 loaves and put into bread pans that have a bit more than 2 Tbs of oil in the pan flipping the loaves so they are oiled on top also. Let raise double again and bake at 350 about 45 minutes or until it sounds hollow when thumped on top. Remove from pans and cool on racks.

Personal Notes:
I got this bread recipe from Mom by standing beside her quickly putting measuring cups under the ingredients while she was dumping them in the bowl. She made this bread every 2 weeks for 30 years. Try it...you may be the next "bread mak'n grandma".
