Today, I thought I would share my recipe for white bread. I got this one a long time ago at Frugal Families. I even thought to take pictures to show you the progress! It’s very simple and easy to make, and oh so delicious!
This white Bread does not take any special ingredients to make, so it both Frugal and easy to make.
2 cups warm water
5 T white sugar or honey
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup oil
5-6 cups flour
Work in the flour until dough no longer looks wet. Knead on a floured surface until smooth. (If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer, you can actually skip this step.)
Place in a well oiled bowl, turning to coat dough with oil. Cover and allow to rise until doubles, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Place on a lightly floured surface and knead again.
Divide in half. Shape into two loaves and place in well oiled loaf pan.
Allow to rise for another hour.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Loaves with be golden brown and sound hollow when done.
This recipe can also be used for rolls and soft breadsticks. You can substitute whole wheat flour for some of the flour if you prefer.
