       Title: Irish Yeast Bread Mix
  Categories: Breads
       Yield: 2 loaf
 
            Mix
       8 c  Flour
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
       4 ts Salt
       2 ts Allspice
     2/3 c  Instant nonfat milk
            Zest from 1 lemon
            For 1 loaf:
       4 c  Mix
       2 pk Dry yeast
       1 c  Warm water
     1/2 c  Milk
     1/3 c  Soft butter
     1/2 c  Each currants and raisins
            More flour if necessary
 
   To make mix, combine all ingredients in plastic bag
   except lemon zest. Add zest and shake bag well. Seal
   and set aside until needed. To make 1 loaf: sprinkle
   yeast over warm water and let foam for 5 minutes.
   Place 2 cups of well shaken mix into a large bowl with
   the milk, butter and yeat mixture and beat with an
   electric mixer until well blended. Cover bowl and let
   mixture rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Then
   place two more cups of mix onto the surface of dough
   in bowl. Beat until well blended again with mixer or
   by hand. Place a little flour on work surface and mix
   in the raisins and currants. Incorporate this into the
   dough and knead until smooth and elastic, adding
   additional flour to make a fairly stiff but pliable
   dough. Place dough in a large grerased bowl and turn
   to coat. Cover and let dough rise double in bulk,
   about 1 to 2 hours. Punch down and knead into a round
   loaf. Place on baking sheet and allow to rise double
   in bulk. Bake in a 350 oven until done, about 50
   minutes. Makes 1 large loaf.
