AMISH WHITE BREAD

Ingredients

2  cups warm water (110 degrees F)
1/3 – 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

Directions

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.

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. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9×5 inch loaf pans.

Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. Bake at 350 degrees F  for 30 minutes.
