Mom got this recipe in the early 70's from someone at work. This is a great bread for sandwiches or even a rustic style supper. The bread is a coarse style bread - full of air holes but loaded with fresh made bread flavor. No need for a bread machine for this bread! Prep time does not include overnight rise time.

Directions

  1. In large mixing bowl, dump all ingredients together and stir until blended well.
  2. Cover with a towel and lid (for weight) and let stand overnight.
  3. DO NOT STIR OR KNEAD.
  4. In the morning, prep 3 loaf pans by greasing well with shortening or butter. Pour batter direct from bowl into the loaf pans, dividing the dough evenly.
  5. Bake immediately in pre-heated 350º oven for 30 minutes. Bread is done when golden brown and when tapped lightly gives a hollowed sound.
  6. Remove from pans immediately and let cool on wire rack.
  7. *If mixture looks too dry you can add extra water as needed.
  8. **Options - Sprinkle sesame seeds or dried onion flakes to the top of the bread if desired.
  9. Freeze baked bread (wrap well and place in freezer safe bag) when completely cooled for later use. Shelf/counter life of baked bread is 3-4 days maximum.
