This recipe makes 22 very large loaves

  • 10 tablespoons salt 
  • 98 cups flour or more

Mix yeast, water, sugar, oil and salt together.  Add flour as needed to form a soft, not sticky dough. Start with 98 cups of flour and keep adding more until the dough feels “right.”

Knead for 10 minutes until it feels “right.”

Cover and let rest until doubled in size, approximately 1 hour. Punch down and shape into loaves. Cover and let rest until doubled. Bake at 350F until done, 30 minutes or so.
