IMG-8770

1 1/2 cups milk, heated to lukewarm
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp shortening, melted
1 package dry yeast
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*
1/2 cup whole wheat or rye flour*

*You can also use 2 cups all-purpose flour instead of the mix.

In a medium bowl mix the milk, sugar, salt, melted shortening, and yeast. Mix until the salt and sugar are dissolved, then let rest for 5 minutes.

Add in the flour(s) and mix thoroughly, then cover the bowl and let rest for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, stir and check texture. It should be about the consistency of cornbread batter. If too loose, add flour a teaspoon at a time; if too thick, add water a teaspoon at a time. Mix well in between additions.
