Ingredients

  • 5

    c bran flakes

  • 5 1/2

    c very hot water

  • 1/2

    c honey or brown sugar

  • 1/2

    c shortening

    pkg yeast

Directions

In a large bowl mix bran flakes and hot water. Add honey (or brown sugar), shortening, and salt and cool to lukewarm. Meanwhile, dissolve yeast in warm water to which 1 Tbsp sugar has been added. Add to shortening mixture; add white flour to make a soft dough, about 10-11 c. Turn out on floured board and knead for 10 minutes, adding another 1-2 c flour until dough can be managed. Let rise until doubles, knead and let rise again. Shape into loaves; allow to rise to top of pans. Bake at 350 degrees 30-35 minutes until nicely browned and loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Yields 4 loaves.
