2 tsp salt
4 tbl oil
1/2 cup of molasses
6-7 cups of flour

cinnamon rolls, etc.

Bread baking tips:

When bread browns too fast, cover with a piece of brown paper.

Yeast bread that is too porous: This is caused by over-rising, or
baking at too low a temperature.

The crust is dark and blisters: This is caused by under-rising. The
bread will blister under the crust.

The bread doe does not rise: This can be caused by over kneading, or
from using old yeast, or killing the yeast by using water that is too
hot.

If the bread is "crumbly", it may need a bit more kneading.
