Miracle Bread (Hannah's)

Photo thanks to Michelle

10 1/2 c. white bread flour

1/2 c. sugar

1 T. salt

3 rounded tablespoons saf-instant yeast

3 T. liquid lecithin (I didn't have lecithin, so I used 1/3 c. oil)

4 c. hot tap water

Mix dry ingredients. Add lecithin (or oil) and water. Mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry, add a little more water. Dough should be very sticky. Mix for 5 minutes. (Do not add flour to the dough after it has finished mixing.) Spray counter and pans with Pam. Shape loaves, place in pans and cover with a dish towel. Let rise 25 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.Makes 4 loaves.

For whole wheat bread, use the same recipe only with whole wheat flour; replace one cup of the hot water with applesauce, and add 1 additional tablespoon lecithin. Mix for ten minutes.

**Note: if you are making this in a KitchenAid, halve the recipe and make 2 loaves of bread.**

I made bread for the first time! It was so easy I want to make it again and again.
