Bread For Easter Dinner

I'm always looking for new recipes to try and came across this recipe in a magazine and thought it would be good to make for Easter dinner. I've provided step-by-step pics for you to see how I did it.

Getting everything set out and ready to go.

Dissolving yeast in luke-warm water

Milk scalded and left to cool until luke-warm

Incorporating the shortening

Adding the flour

Greasing the bowl to let the dough rise

A floured surface for kneading

Adding flour to make dough more manageable

Removing dough from prep bowl to the floured surface for kneading

The kneaded dough ready for rising

Risen dough after one hour

Dough ready for separation into loaf pans

Loaves after another hour of being left to rise

Halfway done

Just out of the oven

Easy out of the pan

Buttered to golden perfection

A slice warmed with butter and blackberry jelly

Well, there you have it. If you'd like the complete recipe just drop me an email. It called for a tablespoon of salt which Mom thought was too much. (It did taste a bit salty.) I also overcooked it, but other than that, it turned out great!
