Amish White Bread
This amish white bread turns out a deliciously moist bread that we just love to make a good ole fashioned peanut butter and jelly with! Of course, it's great for any sandwhich, or even enjoyed plain with a little butter.
Cook Time: 30-40 minutes
Serving Size: 1 two pound loaf or 2 one pound loaves
Ingredients2 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
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. Or, if you want to use your mixer with a dough hook, knead on speed 2 for 2 min. Add additional flour, 1 T at a time if dough is too sticky. 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. Deflate dough. Knead for a few minutes. Place dough in your USA Pan Hearth Bread pan. Or, you can divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into your USA Pan 9x5 inch loaf pans (1 1/4 pound). Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40-45 min for one large loaf, or for 30 min for 2 smaller loaves. ENJOY!! Store leftovers (if there are any!) tightly wrapped for several days. This recipe can be adjusted to make one large loaf in our Hearth Bread pan, or make 2 loaves in our 1 1/4 pound pans.
