amish bread
« on: September 27, 2014, 02:35:16 PM »
Ingredients:
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F /45 degrees C)
THIS TEMP IS VERY IMPORTANT! to cool and it wont activate / too hot and youll kill the yeast.
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:

1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.

2. 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.

3. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.

4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

NOTE:
make sure that you have good yeast and this bread is a little sweet so try 1/3 cup sugar instead of the 2/3 cup.
