My family and I are obsessed with homemade bread! Especially when it is fresh out of the oven because we tend to eat an entire loaf in 10 minutes or less! It is so delicious with butter but even by itself you can see us just walking around the house with a piece of bread in our hand as a snack! I am so excited to share this recipe with you. Sometimes I like to add a bit of ground flaxseed to the mix to make it a bit more nutritious.
Let me know in the comments how you enjoyed (because I know that you will!) your yummy, scrumptious bread!
Now to the recipe!
1 1/2 tablespoons dry active yeast
2/3 cups pure cane sugar
2 cups warm water
1/4 cup oil (not olive oil due to the strength of its taste)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
6 cups of all purpose flour (about 5 cups if using whole wheat flour)
Add water, yeast and sugar to a measuring cup and cover with towel
Allow to rise and foam for about 7 minutes
Add sugar, water and yeast to a large bowl
Add oil and salt and stir
Add flour, one cup at a time, stir well
Add well mixed dough to a greased bowl and cover with a damp towel (It is VERY important for the dough to remain damp so it will be nice and fluffy once done)
Let sit and rise for an hour
Cut dough in half
Knead each piece of dough for five minutes
Roll dough onto a floured surface and make flat
Roll dough into a cylinder and fold ends under to create a "loaf"
Place in bread pan and cover with damp towel.
Allow to rise for 20 minutes
Place in oven for 30 minutes
Tap the sides or bottom to check for a hollow sound to ensure it is done!
