Chinese Silver Loaves

1 3/4 cups hot water
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vegatable oil or shortening
6 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt

Add sugar and shortening to hot water and stir until sugar is dissolved and allow to cool until barely warm

Sift remaining ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and gradually stir in sugar mixture. Mix well and gradually draw dough together with your hands. It should be soft but not sticky

On a floured board, knead dough about 5-8 minutes or until smooth or elastic. Return to bowl, cover with damp cloth, and let rise at least 1 hour.
