    2       pk           Dry yeast
      1/2   c            Warm water
      1/2   c            Nonfat dry milk powder
      2/3   c            Sugar, granulated
      1/2   c            Oil, vegetable
    1       t            Salt
    2                    Eggs
    1 1/3   c            Warm water
    7 1/2   c            Flour, all-purpose, as neede
 
   Soften yeast in 1/2 cup warm water for 10 minutes.
   Using a large food processor, electric mixer or wooden
   spoon, beat yeast mixture, dry milk powder, sugar,
   oil, salt and eggs until smooth.  Add 1 1/3 cups warm
   water and 2 cups of the flour; beat until smooth.  Add
   remaining flour, a little at a time, beating well
   after each addition.  Stop adding flour when a stiff
   dough is formed.  Without a heavy-duty mixer or food
   processor, you will need to work in the last of the
   flour with your hands.  With dough hook or by hand on
   a lightly floured surface, knead until dough is smooth
   and elastic.  Place in a greased bowl and turn to
   grease top.  Cover and let rise until double in bulk,
   about 2 1/2 hours.  Punch dough down and fold over
   edges, pressing until air bubbles are pushed out.
   Divide dough into 4 pieced.  form each piece into a
   loaf or ball.  Place in greased 8x4 inch loaf pans or
   8-inch round cake pans.  Cover and allow to rise until
   double in size, about 1 hour.  Bake in a preheated 350
   oven for 40 minutes or until nicely browned and done.
   Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Freeze extra
   loaves for futureuse.
