Recipe: Shredded Wheat Bread

2 shredded wheat BISCUIT 1 tablespoon shortening

  • 1 cup hot milk ½ yeast cake
  • 1 cup hot water ¼ cup lukewarm water
  • ½ cup molasses 6 cups entire wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Crumble the BISCUIT; add milk, water, molasses, salt, and shortening; when lukewarm add yeast cake dissolved in lukewarm water, and sifted flour; knead well, cover and let rise until double in bulk; cut down, shape into loaves or BISCUIT, put into greased pans, let rise until light, and bake in a hot oven about fifty minutes for loaves, and twenty-five minutes for BISCUIT. This makes one loaf and one pan of BISCUIT. A little more or less flour may be needed.
