Homemade Bread

I originally got this recipe from a lady at church and she got her recipe from someone else. So, I really don't know who this recipe belongs but I am assuming her name is Sheila since that is what the bread is called. This recipe is very simple and it is a good recipe for beginners. You will need a mixer for this recipe as well as 3 pans for baking.

Sheila's Bread
4 1/2 c. White Flour (can replace with wheat or do half and half)
1/2 c. Gluten Powder
1/2 c. Sugar
2 T. Instant Yeast
1 T. Salt

1. Put all of these in a mixer. Then Add:

1/4 c. Melted Butter
2 3/4 c. Warm Water

2. Mix all the ingredients for 3 min. on high. Then Add:

3 1/2 c. White Flour or Wheat Flour

3. Turn mixer on high for 8 min.
4. Put the lid on the mixer and let it rest for 10 min. (if you don't have a lid, then plop the dough out onto a "pammed" counter and cover it with a large bowl.)
5. After the dough has rested for 10 min., divide it into 3 loaves
6. Shape it into a rectangular shape and press out the bubbles
7. Roll it up like a sleeping-bag
8. Put it in "pammed" bread pans.
9. Place loaves in a cold oven and let it rise for 1 hour
10. Then turn the oven to 350 and cook for 25 min.
11. Remove from oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
12. Remove bread from pans and move to wire cooling rack.

*To tell if your bread is ready, check the bottom of the bread to see if it is golden brown. It should appear darker then the rest of the bread.
