Guest Post: Tupperware Bread Recipe

This was e-mailed to me from Jennifer, one of our readers (and thank you, kind lady for the recipe). She wanted to share a recipe for super simple Tupperware bread. She tells me that don't worry if you don't have a tupperware container. Just use a LARGE mixing bowl (since the recipe makes a lot) and put a cookie sheet on top of the bowl. When the dough hits bottom of the cookie sheet you are ready to go. Since this bread doesn't require punching down and a second rise I DEFINITELY have to try this. If you're really worried about letting the bread rise to long, just remember "until doubled in volume" (the litany of all bread recipes) and you should do fine =).


6 tbsp. butter
3 pkgs. dry yeast (not rapid rise)
3 3/4 c. warm water
6 tbsp. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
10 c. flour (omit the salt if using self rising flour)
4 1/2 tsp. salt

Melt 6 tablespoons butter; let cool. In Tupperware fix in mix bowl, put yeast (not rapid rise). Add warm water, sugar, eggs, butter and salt with the flour. Combine all ingredients. Place seal on bowl. Place in hot water in sink, let rise until seal pops off.
Butter hands, dough will be sticky. Separate into 3 loaves. Let rise 30 minutes, covered with clean dish towel. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned.

Go forth people and make bread!
