The only bread recipe I have been successful with. Quick, easy, and tastes great!!
Makes two loaves.
2cups warm water
1.5 tbsp yeast
1.5 tsp salt
1/4cup vegetable oil
5.5 cups flour (I just used all purpose)
Dissolve sugar in warm water. Add yeast and let proof. Mix oil into yeast mixture once proofed.
Mix flour and salt in separate bowl.
Add dry mixture to wet mixture one cup at a time and stir / mix until soft dough forms.
Knead for 3-5 minutes.
Place in oiled bowl, turn over to coat both sides. Let rise one hour.
Punch down, shape into loaves. Place into greased bread pans. Let rise 30-40 minutes.
Bake at 350 for approx 30 minutes. Brush tops with butter while warm.
