Hi my name is Regina and I am a carbohydrate junkie! There I confess…one weakness well there are many,but today it was homemade bread! I found many recipes on pinterest, but this one http://jujugoodnews.com/amish-white-bread/ looked pretty good and easy. So I gave it a whirl…and I was right, it is YUMMY!
Here is what you will need…
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour
dissolve the sugar in the warm water
add your yeast
proof it until it gets nice and foamy
stir in the oil and salt
then add the flour a cup at a time…yes I transferred this to the big mixer, I should have started there 🙂
mix it all up
turn it out onto a floured surface and need until smooth, I had to add a lil extra water.
place in a well oiled bowl, and turn to coat
cover with a damp cloth and proof until the ball doubles in size (about an hour) If your oven does not have a proof setting, just find a nice warm place in the house.
Ok it did get big, but I got excited and punched it down before I got a picture…so punch the dough and divide the dough in half
make 2 nice loafs and place in 9x 5 inch bread pans…mine were slightly larger, it did not matter.
let rise until about an inch above the pan…takes about a half hour
see nice and big
bake at 350
for 30 minutes
I brushed the tops with melted butter even more YUM!
