Lightly grease hands and pat top of dough just to lightly moisten

Cover with a towel and place the bowl in a warm draftless place and let the dough rise until doubled in size.


PREHEAT OVEN TO 400 DEGREES

Lightly grease 4-6 average size bread pans

Punch down the dough when it has doubled in size--make loaves 1/2 the size of the pans being used--place the loaves in the pans & let dough rise just over the tops of the pans

BAKE FOR 20 - 30 minutes or until tops begin to tan

Rolls


Use bread recipe

After punching dough down break off enough down to make a 1 1/2 inch ball and place dough balls side by side on a lightly greased cookiesheet -- pieplat -- or cake pan.

Let rise to size desired

Bake for 10-20 minutes or until tops begin to tan

That looks like way too much water for the amount of flour, for a general yeast bread. The usual ratio is approximately 1 part water to 3 parts flour, that recipe is not even 1:2. The other amounts look about right. Might check the water amount for typing errors.

Bagels? Make a yeast bread. Knead it very thoroughly. Make the bagels by forming a ball, poking finger and thumb through, then widen and stretch to about donut size. Let them rise (covered) for 30 minutes.

Boil a 3 gallon pot of water, to which you have aded about a cup of 1) malt extract, or 2) honey, or 3) sugar. Honey is easier to get in many places, sugar is the easiest. The sweetener doesn't make the bagel sweet, but helps develop the shiny, chewy crust. Gently drop the bagels in the pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. remove, let drip off, and set on a baking sheet. Bake at about 400 for 10-12 minutes, then flip them over and bake another 10-12 minutes.

You can skip the boil (let them rise for a full hour), and the flip, and they will be bagel-shaped bread rolls. Using whole grain flours mean adding a touch more of water.

Hello Folks--I apologize for my absence and not getting in here sooner--we have been busy with a raffle-to raise money for a young gal from our Home town-that needed to have surgery to remove one of her kidneys taken over by cancer. Then we've been getting some pretty nasty storms up here-- and we are having to replace part of our roof--5 walls-- 2 floors & 2 ceilings in our home, as a result.

Oooookay Now---The recipe is correct--it's my Mom's she been making it just that way for over 40 years--how many loaves you get depends on how big or small your bread pans are. I generally mix the batch as the recipe calls for and form my loaves and bake two or three and freeze the rest-- and thaw and bake in a week or two.

I'm glad to see the the bagel dilema resolved--lol--I kinda panicked when I saw your request Marine -I didn't have the foggiest idea about that and was ready to do a major search for you.


I hope this helps---Take Care All

Jerry,

I cut the recipe down to a third and put it in my bread maker as follows:

3 cups flour
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp vegetable oil
1-2/3 cup warm water
1 package yeast

It turned out quite well, but it was slightly more salty than I cared for. You might try 1-1/2 tsp of salt. As I recall, the dough was just slightly sticky and I added about 2 tablespoons of flour, but if you are making it (not in a machine) it should be ok.

Hope this helps,
Tim
