    quart lukewarm water
  • 12
    cup sugar

  • Remove 1 cup starter and keep in fridge for the next time you wish to make 4 loaves.
  • Add remaining ingredients in the order listed.
  • Use only enough flour to make the dough easy to handle.

  • Let rise in a greased bowl, keep in a warm place, cover it, until about doubled. Knead again and divide into 4 equal parts.
  • Shape each loaf into a 9" round & place in 9" greased cake pans.
