White Batter Bread

Prep: 15 mins - Total: 1 hr 5 mins

1-1/4 cups warm (108°F) water 
1 pkg. active dry yeast 
1 Tbsp. shortening 
1 Tbsp. sugar 
2 tsp. salt 
3 cups sifted flour, divided
Melted butter or margarine 

Pour warm water into large mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water; stir until dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes. 

Add shortening, sugar, salt and 1-1/2 cups of the flour. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer or 300 vigorous strokes by hand, scraping sides and bottom of bowl frequently. Stir in remaining flour. 

Scrape batter from sides of bowl; cover with clean towel. Let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes. 

Stir down batter with wooden spoon; spread evenly into greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. (Batter will be sticky.) Let rise in warm place, free from draft, until edge of batter reaches about 1/4 inch from top of pan, about 40 minutes. 

Bake at 375°F for 45 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove bread from pan immediately to wire rack; brush top with melted butter. Cool completely. 

Makes 1 loaf
