For my first recipe, I opened the book to a random page and made the first recipe for which I had all the ingredients. (Old Order Amish Bread, page 48). As a weekly bread-maker, finding the ingredients for this bread was no problem! I even had bread flour in the pantry - not always the case. The recipe called for 5 - 6 cups of bread flour but I could not knead in more than 4 cups! No matter, though, it turned out lovely, light and fluffy. The loaves were smaller than my "usual" loaves of bread, but perfectly acceptable to my husband and 4 children. The first loaf was eaten before it was even cold! As a final note, this bread was time consuming to make, since it needed a third rising.
