Special thanks to Melissa and Sean, for if they hadn't put this book in their Discard pile, I might have never found this recipe!
According to page 1 of the book: Baking is an art - you are the artist!
Step 1: Ingredients
1 packet of yeast
2 tablespoons soft shortening+
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3 cups sifted flour ++
+ you can use Crisco, butter or margarine
++ sift flour and then measure
Step 2: Yeast into water
Step 3: Stir to disolve yeast
Step 4: Adding some ingredients and mix
300 strokes if doing it by hand, 2 minutes at medium speed if using an electric mixer like I do. Batter will look rather thin (like cake batter), but don't panic, that is how it should look.
