Buttery Bubble Bread.

My Mother-in-law and my husband (because he likes it so much) has gotten me into making homemade bread. I have never tried much than just a loaf of bread. This is also a Shepherd recipe. It is so good! I was a little nervous about making it for the first time but it seemed to turn out pretty good! Try it! You'll like it! :)

1 pkg. Active dry yeast
1 C. warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. shortening
1 egg
1/2 tsp. salt
4 to 4 1/2 C. all purpose flour
6 Tsp. of melted butter

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast into warm water. Add sugar, shortening, egg, salt, and 1 C. flour.
Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured surface ; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 min. Place in greased bowl, turn once to grease the top of the dough. Cover and let rise until doubled. (around an hour) Punch dough down. Turn onto lightly floured surface; shape into 1in. balls and dip balls into melted butter and place evenly into a bunt pan. Drizzle with remaining butter. Cover and let rise for around 45 min. or until doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees or until golden brown. Let cool of 5 min. and turn over on a serving platter. Best when served warm!


  1. This looks SO good! :) May just have to try it. I have a weakness for homemade breads though, I could eat this whole thing!! Not good for the figure!!

  2. I'm having Aaron and Mindy Hand (Mindy Hemmings) over tonight if their daughter isn't sick. I'm going to make this for supper!! Looks great, and I've been waiting for an opportunity to make it.

  3. You'll have to let me know about other bread recipes you have. I'm trying to get into making it a little more but I have no experience in the bread area, and no recipes that I am confident in. :-)
