Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 packages yeast
6 cups warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
13 cups flour
2 tablespoons salt
1-3/4 cups sugar
1 big cup lard
5 eggs
cinnamon
butter

Instructions

Put yeast in 1 cup warm water and 2 tablespoons sugar. Add remaining water, flour, salt, sugar, lard and eggs. This may need a little more flour. Knead until it squeaks, place in large greased bowl. It may take two bowls and let rise until doubled, punch down and let it rise again. Roll out and then put melted butter and cinnamon on. Roll up and cut in 1-inch slices. Place in greased pans or glass cake pans. Since this will have 7 or 8 dozen, it takes many pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Frost with your favorite frosting.
