2 pkgs yeast
6 cups flour (5 for microwave)
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup water


Combine 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and soda.  Heat liquids until very
warm (120-130 F).  Add to dry mixture; beat well.  Stir in rest of flour to
make a stiff batter.  Spoon into 2 loaf pans that have been greased and
sprinkled with cornmeal.  Cover; let rise in warm place for 45 minutess.
Bake at 400 F for 25 minutes.  Remove from pans immediately and cool.

Or: microwave each loaf on High for 6 minutes 30 seconds.   Allow to rest 5
minutes before removing from pans.


The bread won't brown if you bake it in a microwave, so don't be tempted
to bake it longer than the specified time.  It's still delicious!

My favorite way to eat this bread is in thick slices lightly broiled with
lots of butter (or margarine) and cinnamon-sugar mixture.
