2 Cups Milk (warm)
1/2 Cup Water (warm)
2 pkg dry Yeast
1 TB Sugar
2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
6 Cups Bread Flour (Plus Extra)
2 Tb Cornmeal
Proof yeast in 1/2 cup warm water with a tsp sugar added.
Meanwhile warm the milk. In a large bowl mix 3 cups flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Pour yeast mixture and milk into the flour mixture. Mix for 5 minutes before adding the remaining flour- one cup at a time. Mix well and divide dough into 2 greased and cornmeal sprinkled 8" X 4" approx. loaf pans. Sprinkle more cornmeal on top and let rise to top of pans at least if not more. This is a very soft sticky dough.
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
NOTE: I knead in more flour so it's like regular bread dough.
