Basic Bread Recipe

From my class at Pantry Secrets

This recipe makes 4 loaves of bread in 1 hour. Amazing. You can use this same recipe for pizza, rolls, braids, breadsticks, etc.

10 1/2 c. white bread flour or wheat flour (do not use all-purpose flour)
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbs. salt
3 heaping tablespoons saf-instant yeast (can buy this cheapest at Maceys)
3 Tbs. liquid lecithin (squeeze 3 quarter sized circles directly into bowl--do not measure)
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 Pam. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Let raise 25 minutes. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

For whole wheat bread, use the same recipe, but add one cup of applesauce as part of the hot tap water. Mix for ten minutes.


  1. Okay....what is lethicin, and where do I get it?

  2. It replaces the oil, and is VERY sticky. I bought mine from a lady named Jeannie (who taught the class--she's known around these parts as "the bread lady". Her number is 787-4396 and she lives by the temple. It has an amazing shelf life--like forever. It's really the easiest/fastest recipe ever. You should try it.

  3. I've never heard of lethicin either.
