I need some please. I tried a couple out last night and one ended up too hard and the other ended up too yeasty. If you have a great old fashioned bread recipe please share with me :)

i warn you this might be long,
1lb of self raising flour
2tsp bread soda
two tsp sugar
1tsp of salt
cup and a half of wholemeal flour
half cup of bran
fist full of porridge
3/4 litre of butter milk

sieve the self raising and bread soda together in big bowl. then throw all other ingredients in together, finally slowly add buttermilk, and mix with your hands, it is better wetter than dryer, wetting your hands with warm water helps too, get a round bread tin and flour the bottom or use parchment paper on the bottom. shape the mixture into a ball, hard to do as it should stick together but hold shape for about 10 seconds, remember the wetter the better, place in round tin and cut a cross in the top, make it deep, put tin foil, shiny side down on top of the tin and put in preheated oven at 160 degrees celcius for 30 mins, take the cover off and leave in oven for further 35 mins. bread should be hard on top. do not take out of tin. get a tea towel and soak it and wring it out, put on bread and tuck in at sides, leave until bread is cool then take towel off and take bead out of tin. enjoy, this bread can be frozen, let me know how you get on

Okay, had to wait until I got to my Mom's house to get the recipe but here it is.

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon yeast
2 cups hot water
1/2 cup shortening or 6 tablespoons of oil
2 eggs

Sift the dry ingredients together and set aside. Mix the hot water and shortening/oil in mixer bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Add the eggs. Sift another 3-4 cups of flour. Add to mix gradually as you mix until the dough is stiff. Remove the dough from the bowl and put it on the board. Knead any residual dry flour into the mix but do not add more. Place in oiled bowl and turn over once to coat with oil. Cover with tea-towel and place bowl over bowl of hot water (double boiler style). Let it rise and then punch it down. Cover and let rise again. Do not punch it down the second time. Pinch off fist sized pieces for hot rolls, form a loaf for bread, or roll out flat on board for beirox. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until brown.

This will make the kinda sweet-ish flavored bread like many restaurants serve as hot rolls. Using oil instead of shortening is a low-fat option that works well. And I am sure you know that you can either use oil or flour on your hands to keep the dough from sticking to them.

Have fun baking. :D
