Sweet Bread Recipe

Traditional Newfoundland 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.
