Amish White Bread

I got this recipe from a friend. It is very easy, and doesn’t take long to make.

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
