Payson 1st Wards YUMMY Easy Quick Homemade Bread

10 1/2 cups white bread flour (do not use all-purpose flour)

1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
3 rounded tablespoons saf-instant yeast
3 tablespoons liquid lecithin*
4 cups hot tap water

Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl(not your mixers bowl). In your mixers bowl, add lecithin and water. Then add your dry ingredients to the mixers bowl. Mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry, add more water. If dough is too moist, add more flour. Mix for 5 minutes. (Do not add water or flour to the dough after it has finished mixing.) Spray counter and pans with PAM. A little spray on your hands helps too. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Let raise for up to 25 minutes. (My bread is often ready to bake faster than 25 minutes) Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. This recipe makes four loaves of bread.

*Squeeze or pour approx 3 tablespoons of lecithin directly into the bowl. Do not measure. The lecithin will stick forever!!!

For whole wheat bread, use the same recipe but add one cup applesauce as part of the hot tap water. Mix for ten minutes.
Recipe will make 4 large bread braids. It will make 2 large cookie sheets FULL of rolls or bread sticks. It will make 2 large cookie sheets of sweet rolls rolls.
***This recipe was taught to the Payson 1st Ward Relief Society by Pantry Secrets several years ago. For more information visit
