3 cups bread flour

Directions:
sprinkle yeast over warm water and let soften. Combine hot milk, sugar, salt and shortening. Cool to luke warm. Stir in two cups flour well. Add softened yeast and mix well. Add remaining flour, 1 cup at time. After adding 3 cups, it is time to take the dough out of the bowl, flour your counter and start adding flour through by kneading the dough. Add rest of dough for a stiff dough. Depending on the day, I sometimes can only get 5 cups of flour in. Test: when your form the dough into a smooth ball, the dough "breaks" or shreds on top.

Knead your dough for 2 minutes. Shape dough into ball. Place in a large greased bowl. Cover and let it rise to double size. Punch down. Cut into two equal portions. Shape each portion into a smooth ball and place in greased bread pan. Cover and let it rise to double. Bake at 400 for 35 minutes or until done.
