A “package of yeast” is an American measurement. One package is a quarter of an ounce, or about 2 and 1/4 tablespoons.
From the box of D.E. from Maumee, Ohio.
1 package dry yeast
1/4 c. very warm water, 115 deg.
2 c. water
1 c. dry milk powder
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. salt
6 1/2 c. flour (about)
Dissolve yeast in water and let stand 5 min.
Add milk, oil, sugar, and salt. Stir well.
Gradually add flour — stir well. Cover and let stand up to 8 hours or until doubled.
Sprinkle top of dough with flour and turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth and satiny. Divide and shape — fit into 2 loaf pans and let rise about 1 hour.
Bake at 400 deg. for 25 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove and cool on racks.
