Amish White Bread Recipe

2 cups warm water (110°F or 45°C)
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups all-purpose flour

Proof Yeast: In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over the top and let stand for about 10 minutes, until frothy.

Mix Dough: To the yeast mixture, add salt and oil. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.

First Rise: Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Punch and Shape: Punch down the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a loaf. Place the loaves into two lightly greased 9×5 inch loaf pans.

Second Rise: Cover the loaves and let them rise again for about 30 minutes, or until the dough has risen 1 inch above the pans.

Bake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the loaves for about 30 minutes, or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped.

Cool: Remove the bread from the pans and let cool on wire racks.

Enjoy your Amish White Bread, a simple and delicious homemade bread that’s perfect for any occasion!
