3 cups very hot water
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs instant yeast
8 cups flour
oil for oven

Combine water, butter, sugar, salt, yeast and stir until butter is melted. Add approximately 5 cups flour and mix to form a thick batter. Continue adding flour until a stiff dough forms. Knead on a floured board until smooth (about 10minutes). Placed in a greased 12 inch oven, cover with the lid and let rise until doubled (about 45 minutes). Punch down and knead for a few minutes and place back in greased oven. Let rise until almost doubled. Bake at 350 degrees (12 coals on top and 8 on bottom) for 45 minutes. The top will be golden brown. Tastes great hot out of the oven with honey butter. Leftovers, if there are any, are great for French toast.
