To you, all of our Alaskan neighbors. This recipe is the best, never had better bread recipe. We were given this over 30 years ago in Fairbanks and have never heard anything but praise. I hope you folks will give this a try!
2 cups of warm water.
1 package of dry yeast > stir in until dissolved.
1/2 tsp of ginger.
2 tsp salt.
1 tsp sugar.
Add 2 cups of flour and beat well, then add 3 cups of flour to make a stiff dough. Kneed until elastic, let rise until double.
Make into 2 long slim loaves place on greased cooking sheet with a little corn meal sprinkled on the cooking sheet.
Brush the tops of the loaves with cold water and make 3 or 4 diagonal slashes on the tops.
Let rise until double and brush with melted butter (yes, that's the real stuff).
Bake @ 450 degrees for seven mins, reduce oven to 350 degrees continue baking for 35 mins.
I want you folks to know that this bread does not last. (it gets ate up fast)
