Amish White Bread


2 T Yeast
2/3 C Sugar
2 C Warm Water
1 1/2 t Salt
1/4 C Oil
6 C Bread Flour

Combine the yeast and sugar in a bowl. Add the warm water and agitate slightly. Let sit for about 30-45 minutes or until VERY foamy.

Add salt and oil. Mix well. Add 1 C of flour at a time, mixing well after each addition. By the time you get to the 5th or 6th cup turn it out onto the counter and knead until very elastic. You should be able to poke it and it will immediately spring back--about 15 to 20 minutes.

Let rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.  Punch down and knead a few times on a lightly floured surface.

Divide into two loaves, or whatever shape you want, and let rise in a draft free place another 30 minutes or so.

Bake in 350F degree oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
