Potato Bread


2 c. milk, scalded
3 c. potato water
2 cakes compressed yeast
2 Tbs. butter
4 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. sugar
12 to 12 1/2 c. flour


Scald milk, stir in butter, salt and sugar. Add potato water. Cool to lukewarm. Crumble in yeast. Stir until dissolved. Add 4 c. flour; beat until smooth. Add enough additional flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured board. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Form into a smooth ball. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch down. Divide dough in quarters. Shae each into a loaf. Place each loaf in a greased 9x5x3 inch bread pan. Cover and let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Bake in 400 degree oven about 30 minutes. Remove from pans and cool.
