Granny's Bimini Bread
Granny's Bimini Bread recipe 24
yeast, active dry
milk, skim, (non fat) powder
Soften yeast in ½ cup warm water for 10 minutes. Using a large food processor, electric mixer or wooden spoon, beat yeast mixture, dry milk powder, sugar, oil, salt and eggs until smooth.
Add 1⅓ cups warm water and 2 cups of the flour; beat until smooth. Add remaining flour, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Stop adding flour when a stiff dough is formed.
Without a heavy-duty mixer or food processor, you will need to work in the last of the flour with your hands.
With dough hook or by hand on a lightly floured surface, knead until dough is smooth and elastic.
Place in a greased bowl and turn to grease top. Cover and let rise until double in bulk, about 2½ hours.
Punch dough down and fold over edges, pressing until air bubbles are pushed out.
Divide dough into 4 pieces. Form each piece into a loaf or ball. Place in greased 8x4 inch loaf pans or 8-inch round cake pans. Cover and allow to rise until double in size, about 1 hour.
Bake in a preheated 350℉ (180℃) F oven for 40 minutes or until nicely browned and done. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Freeze extra loaves for future use.
