Scald and cool milk. Add salt, molasses, and fat. Stir in eight cups of flour until smooth. (If using an electric mixer, let it beat the dough until it is stiff.) Dissolve yeast in water for 10 minutes. Add yeast and remaining flour to the first dough.

Knead and let rise until doubled in bulk. Knead again, shape into six loaves, and place into 5" X 9" bread pans. Let rise until doubled in bulk. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until brown.
