Mix yeast and water and shortening until dissolved. Add molasses and then flour until right consistency. Let rise in a greased bowl until double in size. Then kneed on a floured board, adding more flour if neccessary.
Divide dough into 3 equal part and place in greased loaf pans and let rise again. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
