White Bread

6 c. warm water
3 T. instant yeast
3/4 c. shortening
2 1/2 T. salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. powdered milk
15 or more cups white flour
Put water, yeast, shortening, salt and sugar in mixing bowl of Bosch. Add 8 cups of flour and put the powdered milk on top of the flour. Mix until smooth. Add 2 more cups of flour and mix well. Add 2 more cups of flour and mix. Add the other flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well. When dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, let mix for 5-10 minutes. Let rise, mix down and mold into loaves. Place them in greased bread pans. Let rise and bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Makes 6 or 7 loaves, depending on the size of the bread pans you use.
I doubled the recipe and it made 55 small loaves. I gave these small loaves to the children when I did The Little Red Hen at the Library story time.
