How to make Grandmother Bread:
2 1/2 cups very warm water1 package yeast1/2 teaspoon salt1/3 cup sugar5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
In a large bowl, combine water, yeast, sugar, and salt. Let sit five minutes. Stir in first three cups of flour with a heavy spoon. Add the next cup of flour a little at a time as needed, stirring until dough becomes too stiff to continue stirring easily. Add a little more flour and begin kneading. The 5 1/2 cups flour is approximate-your mileage may vary! Continue adding flour and kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let dough rise in a greased, covered bowl until doubled. (Usually, about an hour.) Uncover bowl; sprinkle in a little more flour and knead briefly before dividing in half. With floured hands, shape dough into loaves and place in two greased loaf pans. Tear off two pieces of plastic wrap and grease with oil spray (to prevent it from sticking to the loaves as they rise) and cover loaf pans. Let rise till loaves are tall and beautiful! (About an hour, depending on the temperature in your kitchen.)
Bake for 25 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven. Makes two loaves. Recipe can be cut in half or doubled.
Dinner rolls:After the first rise, divide dough into balls and place in a large casserole dish or on a baking sheet. Let rise. Bake at 350-degrees for 15 minutes.
To make brown-and-serve rolls: Bake rolls for 8 minutes. Do not brown. Remove from oven and cool. Store in freezer-safe wrappings or containers. To serve-defrost for 15 minutes then bake at 350-degrees about 10 minutes or till browned.
Cinnamon-Swirl Bread:After the first rise, divide dough in half. Roll each half out on a floured surface into an approx. 12-inch by 7-inch rectangle. Brush lightly with approx. 1/3 cup melted butter. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. (Want more cinnamony sweetness? Double the sugar-cinnamon!) Sprinkle half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture over each half. Roll up. Place seam-side down in loaf pans. Let rise and bake at 350-degrees for 25 minutes. If desired, immediately after removing baked bread from oven, drizzle tops with powdered sugar icing.
To make powdered sugar icing: Mix 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until the mixture is of drizzling consistency. (If you like a lot of icing, double recipe.)
Sweet Rolls:After the first rise, divide dough in half. Roll each half out on a floured surface into an approx. 12-inch by 7-inch rectangle. Brush lightly with approx. 1/3 cup melted butter.
For Cinnamon Rolls: Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture over each half. (Add raisins if desired.) Roll up from one of the long sides and seal seams. Slice dough into 12 pieces. Repeat with second half. Place rolls on large greased baking sheet or two greased round cake pans. Let rise till doubled. Bake in 350-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Invert on serving dish. Drizzle with powdered sugar icing as described above.
For Caramel-Pecan Rolls: Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture over each half. Roll up from one of the long sides and seal seams. Slice dough into 12 pieces. Repeat with second half. Mix 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, and 2 tablespoons light corn syrup in a small pot. Cook and stir till combined and melted together. Pour into large greased casserole dish or divide between two greased round cake pans. Sprinkle the pan(s) with 1 cup chopped pecans. Place rolls in pan(s). Let rise till doubled. Bake in 350-degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Invert on serving dish.
Crispies:After the first rise, roll out each half of the dough on a floured surface into a 12-inch square. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Spread over rolled dough. Roll up each half, seal seams, and cut into 12 pieces. Use the bottom of a glass to flatten pieces. Let rise for 30 minutes. Place rolls a few at a time on baking sheets about four inches apart, cover with waxed paper and roll a rolling pin over the rolls to flatten them again. Brush with more melted butter. Sprinkle with more cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 400-degrees for 8-10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Apple-Streudel Ladder Loaf:After the first rise, divide dough in half, and roll each half into an 8-inch square on a floured surface. Brush a few tablespoons of melted butter on each square. Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 cups chopped, peeled apples for filling. Spread half of the filling down the middle of each square of dough. At the sides of the filling, cut the dough at 1-inch intervals. Fold dough strips over the filling to wrap. Carefully move filled loaves to greased baking sheets. Brush tops with more melted butter; sprinkle with sugar. Let rise till doubled. Bake at 350-degrees for 30 minutes. (Try peaches in this recipe or add nuts-it's all good!) Serve warm slices with ice cream.

Hi! I'm Suzanne from Chickens in the Road, where the Grandmother Bread recipe came from. (I just joined the forum so I'm having trouble just figuring out how to post, LOL. I swear I sent a comment but it seemed to disappear into the ether....) Anyway, if you have any questions about the recipe, let me know. I've been making it almost all my life. It makes great bread. :)
Oh--I wanted to add, too, if you're interested in reading the history behind the Grandmother Bread recipe, I posted about it on my blog here:
