White Batter Bread

Prep: 15 mins Total: 1hr 5 mins

1-1/4 cups warm (108°F) water
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 Tbsp. shortening
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
3 cups sifted flour , divided
Melted butter or margarine


Pour warm water into large mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast over
water; stir until dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes.

Add shortening, sugar, salt and 1-1/2 cups of the flour. Beat
2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer or 300 vigorous
strokes by hand, scraping sides and bottom of bowl frequently.
Stir in remaining flour.

Scrape batter from sides of bowl; cover with clean towel. Let
rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in volume,

place, free from draft, until edge of batter reaches about 1/4
inch from top of pan, about 40 minutes.

brown. Remove bread from pan immediately to wire rack; brush
top with melted butter. Cool completely.
