I got this recipe from a friend. It is very easy, and doesn’t take long to make.
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2/3 cup white sugar 1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast 6 cups bread flour
- In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.
- Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9×5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
