Bread Recipe...no bread machine required!
I've had some requests, so here it is!
White Bread Loaves
(I use my kitchenaid mixer with dough hook, or you can do it all by hand!)
6 cups flour
2 tablespoons instant yeast (or 2 packets)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4-1/3 cup of sugar
1/4 cup oil
2 cups hot water (hot from the tap is fine)
Mix dry ingredients, add oil/water and knead for about 10 minutes. Add water or flour as necessary to keep dough from being too sticky or too dry. Let rise, covered for about an hour, turn onto floured board and cut in half. Press each half into a rectangle (about 6' wide, or so) then roll tightly (like a jelly roll). Pinch the seam shut, then use 3 fingers and press the ends back into the "body" of the loaf (think: rolling gym socks), smooth the ends closed and place in greased loaf pan. (This step sounds harder than it is...takes 5 minutes for both, maybe!) Let rise until about 1" above the edge of the loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Brush with butter, slice, and enjoy!
