Easy Foolproof Amish White Bread

I made this delicious bread yesterday and it was a big hit! It's been so hot, muggy and stormy here so guess what? I baked it on the grill to keep the house nice and cool! My taste testers really enjoyed it - went through an entire loaf already.  Give it a try - and ENJOY!  I think I am going to experiment with  using different flours too.

Here's the recipe:



- 2 cups warm water
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp. active dry yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 6 cups flour


1.  In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water.

2.  Add the yeast and continue stirring until well dissolved.

3.  Mix salt and oil into the yeast.

4.  Mix in flour, one cup at a time.

5.  Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.

6.  Allow to rise until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

7.  Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half.

8.  Shape into loaves, and place the loaves into oiled baking pans.

9.  Allow to rise for 30 minutes in a warm room.

10.  The bread is ready to be baked when the dough has risen 1 inch above the pans.

11.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

12.  Serve this bread hot or cooled, it's delicious either way.
