Directions:
In a large bowl add the yeast sugar and water. Let set until yeast rises to the top. Add the scalded milk that has cooled to lukewarm, salt and shortening and stir to blend. Add two cups of flour and beat into a batter. This is a sponge, let it rest for about 15 minutes.
Add remaining flour, a cup at a time, until you have a stiff dough. Turn dough out on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 15 minutes.
Place dough in clean greased bowl and put a kitchen towel over it and place in warm area to rise. When it has risen double in bulk, punch dough down and let rise again.
Divide into two loaves and place in greased loaf pans and let rise the third time. Bake in a 350 oven for about 35 minutes or until it is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from oven, butter the top and turn out on a cooling rack.

Personal Notes:
This can be doubled or tripled without increasing the amount of yeast you use. Just increase everything else. Mom made bread every week. We would sometimes have homemade bread and a glass of cold milk for supper on Sunday night.
