Cardamon Bread

Ingredients & Directions


2 pk Active Dry Yeast
1 c Warm Water
1 Egg; room temperature
6 c (To 7) Sifted Flour
1/3 c Sugar
1/2 ts Ground Cardamom
2 ts Salt
1/4 c Soft Butter Or Shortening

Sprinkle yeast on warm water; stir to dissolve. Blend in egg, 3 cups of
flour, cardamom, sugar and salt. Beat with mixer at medium speed about 2
minutes til batter is smooth. Add butter and enough remaining flour, a
little at a time, first with spoon and then by hand, to make a fairly soft
dough that leaves the sides fo the bowl. Turn onto lightly floured board.
Knead til smooth and elastic ( 8 minutes). Place in greased bowl and turn
over to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1
hour. Punch down dough, turn over and let rest 10 minutes. Turn out onto
board; divide dough in half. Shape into 2 loaves and place in greased loaf
pans. Cover, let rise til doubled; bake at 400 degrees for 40 to 50
minutes, covering with foil during last 15 minutes to prevent browning too
much. Remove from pans and cool on racks.

NOTES : Makes excellent toast!!
