Knowing how much I like to bake bread, an aunt shared this recipe with me. I enjoy making it on rainy days and giving the house a warm, homey feeling. —Nancy Perry, Sayre, Pennsylvania

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 146 calories, 2 g fat (trace saturated fat), 7 mg cholesterol, 224 mg sodium, 28 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the egg, shortening, sugar, salt and 5 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. With a sharp knife, make five shallow diagonal slashes across the top of each loaf. Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Brush with butter. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each.).
