Sweet Bread Recipe
18 cups flour
1 cup butter
1 cup molasses
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 pkg raisins
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp spice
1 tsp salt
3 tsp yeast
Put 1 cup warm water into a bowl. Add 2 tsp sugar and 3 tsp
yeast. Melt butter in pan, put flour, sugar, raisins, cloves
and salt into large pan and mix well. Add butter, molasses
and yeast mixture. Mix well with hands, adding
enough water to make smooth dough, not sticky. Knead well.
When dough rises about 2 inches over the pan, punch down.
When dough rises again, grease 6 bread pans and put two buns
in a pan. When it rises 2 or 3 inches over the pan, put into
oven to bake about 1 1/2 hours over 250 degrees.
