Nauvoo Bread

5 cups hot water
1 1/2 Tbs salt
1/2 cup potato flakes
1/2 cup oil or shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs yeast
1 cup powdered milk
5 cups whole wheat flour
5 cups white flour

Combine hot water, shortening, potato flakes, powdered milk, and sugar. Stir to dissolve shortening. When temperature is tepid, add yeast. Mix in 5 cups whole wheat flour and salt. Stir to a smooth sponge. Add white flour to make smooth and elastic dough while kneading for 15 minutes. Let rise until double (about 1 hour), punch down and let rise again. Shape into loaves and allow to rise. Bake in 375 degree over for about 35 minutes.

After making this we found out it makes 4 loafs of bread!!
