Ingredients

  • 2

    cups warm water (110°F)

  • 2/3

    cups white sugar

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons active dry yeast

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    cup vegetable oil

  • 6

    cups white flour (or 3 cups wheat, and 3 white)

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in the warm water, add yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam, about 10 minutes. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Work in 6 cups of flour. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in well-oiled bowl, and turn once to coat the entire surface of the dough with oil. Cover with a clean damp cotton cloth. Allow dough to rise until double in size. (Mine took about an hour). Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves and place into well oiled 9x5-inch loaf pans. Allow rising for 30 minutes. Bake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes. When you thump the top of the bread it should sound hollow. For a buttery crust, brush hot loaves with butter. Cool on a rack and enjoy!
