Finnish Bread

This is not quite a full recipe for Grandma's whole wheat molasses bread since she cooks by feel not by measuring but this is close to the real thing! My brother Don said last time the recipe didn't turn out too well but he will try again!

4 c warm water
1/2 cake of yeast
1 1/4 c whole wheat flour
2/3 c molasses
5 c all purpose flour
9 t shortening
     Add cup of flour or T shortening in one at a time working it in we'll as you go.
Then add 4c all purpose flour
    ( recipe weighed out to 950 grams of all purpose flour total )
