Bread Dough

I went to a bread class a while back and learned this recipe.  It's a good recipe because it's things that can be found in your food storage and it uses lecithin rather than oil since oil can go rancid.  This recipe can make four loaves of bread (when they calculated the price for one loaf it was 25 cents!).  You can also use it to make pizza, cinnamon rolls, etc.

10 ½ cups white bread flour
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
3 rounded tablespoons saf-instant yeast
3 tablespoons liquid lecithin*
4 cups hot tap water

Mix dry ingredients. Add lecithin and water. 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 cooking spray. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Let rise 25 minutes. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes.  If you are using it for pizza dough cook at 450. 

*Only half of this recipe will fit in a kitchen aid mixer
