Amish White Bread


I got this white bread recipe from a friend. It is very easy and doesn't take long to make.

Total Time:
2 hrs 25 mins
2 9x5-inch loaves


  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • cup white sugar

  • 1 ½ tablespoons active dry yeast

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 6 cups bread flour


  1. Dissolve sugar in warm water in a large bowl, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam, 5 to 10 minutes.

  2. Mix oil and salt into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well-oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

  3. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well-oiled 9x5-inch loaf pans. Allow to rise until dough has topped the pans by one inch, about 30 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Bake the risen loaves in the preheated oven until golden brown for 30 minutes.
