Breads Biscuits Muffins Etc. From Sunshine Cook Book

Recipe For DELICIOUS NUT BREAD ~ 2 cups sweet milk, 1 teaspoon soda, 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup molasses, 2 cups graham flour, 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon salt.

Mix well and add 1 cup walnut meats cut, not too fine. Let it stand in the pan twenty minutes before baking one hour in a slow oven.

Recipe For WHITE BREAD ~ 1 qt. milk, 1 large spoonful shortening 2 qts. flour 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon salt 1 yeast cake.

Sift flour into a large pail or pan. Mix with it the shortening, sugar, and salt. Scald the milk. When it becomes lukewarm dissolve yeast in it (y2 cake is sufficient in summer). Make a hole in the center of the flour and pour milk and yeast into it. Cover tightly, and leave in a warm place over night. In the morning stir all together, adding flour if necessary until the mixture is thick enough to mold. Knead for a few minutes, then put back in pail and let stand until light. This will make two large loaves and pan of rolls, or three loaves.

1 pt. milk, 1 tablespoon butter 2 tablespoons sugar 1 yeast cake. Flour, enough to make a stiff batter.

Scald the milk, add butter and sugar and let it cool. Then add yeast and flour. Knead ten or fifteen minutes. Cover and put in a warm place to rise. When very light roll out one-half inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter, spread with soft butter, fold over, put on tin and let rise again until very light. Bake in hot oven until a good brown.


Scald 1 pt. of milk, add to it 2 tablespoons of sugar and yi cup butter. When lukewarm crumble into the mixture 1 cake of compressed yeast. Stir until evenly mixed then add 2 well beater eggs and 7 cups of sifted flour. Beat thoroughly, cover and set aside in a warm place to become light.

Roll into a sheet and cut into biscuit, spread a piece of butter on one side of the round, fold over like a pocketbook and let stand until light, then bake. Or the rounds may be placed close together in a buttered pan, first dipping the edges in melted butter. The whole work can be done in between three and four hours. The dough is too soft to knead.
