Homemade White Bread

Welcome back to Kathy’s Kitchen, where you find delicious recipes and helpful hints from others who love to cook. Please send me your favorite recipe and a cooking tip to share from Kathy’s Kitchen

This helpful hint comes from Kathy Cretsinger of Mantle Rock Publishing.

“Remember do not put whole candy bars in an ice cream maker, or you’ll end up with whole frozen bars in your ice cream.”

The following recipe is from my mother. My husband Murray calls it farm bread. As a child I remember eating the bread while it was still warm. I don’t think it ever got cold. I love this recipe for the holidays.


1 cup cold milk
1 cup boiling water
3 tablespoons sugar
2-1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons oil
1 package dry yeast
6 cups flour

Add sugar, salt, and oil to milk and stir until sugar dissolves.  Add boiling water; mixture should be lukewarm.  Stir in yeast and let stand for five minutes.  Stir in 3 cups flour and beat until smooth.  Stir in remaining flour.  Knead dough, turning it and pressing it until dough is smooth and elastic.  Grease the entire outside of dough.  Cover with damp cloth and let rise until doubled in bulk.  Punch down, knead, and divide into two loaves.  Place in greased pans, cover, and let rise until center of loaves are just above edge of pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes.

  1. I'm going to try this recipe, Kathy! Sounds delicious. My grandmother was a breadmaker and the memories of her warm bread are strong. I think my brother will like this. He LOVES bread. Thanks for your recipe.
    Hope December is going well for you. We got tons of snow last night and the throughway was terrible. But the city roads were much better. They had salt and sand for traction. We have maybe a foot this morning. Have a great weekend!
