Yummy White Bread Recipe



Bread is just one of those wonderful foods that I cannot eat enough.  It's my comfort food.  Recently I came across this recipe on a Babycenter recipe board.  It was called "Amish White Bread."  I have no desire to claim it as Amish...it's just bread.  My Amish neighbor certainly doesn't call the recipe she uses for her ten loaves of bread each week Amish Bread.  Anyway...It is a basic white bread...but the way I remember homemade bread that my aunt made when I was a little girl.  I use a Kitchen Aid to knead it with a bread hook to knead it.

White Bread
(makes two loaves)

2 cups warm water
1/3 to 2/3 cups white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6+ cups bread flour.

In a large bowl dissolve sugar in water.  Stir in the yeast.  Allow to proof until yeast is a creamy foam.  Mix in salt and oil.  Mix in flour, one cup at a time.  Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth.  Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn to coat.  Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.  Punch dough down.  Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half.  Shape into loaves.  Place in two well-oiled 9x5 pans.  Allow to rise again for 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

If you try this, let me know!  I'd love to hear your input.
