    KyJo's Note:

    This was my Mom's recipe and we ate a lot of it when I was growing up. You can use this dough for just about anything. We even like it as a pizza crust. Cooking time is just a guess, I always go by the thumping method on bread loaves. Makes 1 doz nuclear rolls or 2 loaves of bread

      I do have some experience baking bread so was able to fill in the blanks in the instructions. The proper way to add the water is once you get the yeast dissolved add water, oil and egg and salt. Stir and begin adding the flour. Then knead.... I baked at 375 and the loaves were nice and large with big rounded tops.

      cooking temps would have been great, also,when do you add the rest of the water, it still made a great bread ( i cooked it at 350 for 20 mins, and didn't add the 2 2/3 cup of water- i didn't know when to!! I have little experience baking, so I just kind of guessed and hoped for the best.
