Amish White Bread
December 29, 2006

Great Versatile Bread I've been making this for months. Even my finnicky 2 yr old loves this 'toast' and it contains no preservatives. GREAT WHITE BREAD: I usually use 1/4 cup of sugar and 1.5 T of oil per loaf. This is a very forgiving recipe. Always start out with a clean dry bowl. If you let it rise a bit more, the bread is very fluffy. Since I let the dough rise more, I have too much dough for the loaf pan. When I've finished the 2nd knead, I shape the loaf and cut off the two small ends of the dough and make 6 small dinner rolls (20 min baking). After baking, immediately remove from pan to prevent sogginess. DINNER ROLLS: Shape into golf size balls, let rise and freeze individually,ziploc when frozen. CINNAMON ROLLS: Great dough base, the other cinnamon roll doughs are FULL of butter. Use the full amount of sugar. Be sure to spray between rolls. For the filling, I use the clone of a cinnabun. ECONOMICAL: I buy a pkg of 10lb bread flour from Smart and Final for $5.50. That's 34 cups of flour. I buy yeast from costco, a 2lb bag is around $3.50. I give my mom half the bag. Always be sure the yeast is fresh and refrigerated. STORAGE: Storage and slicing is a negative aspect about homemade bread. However, this bread keeps soft for 3-4 days. My hubbie got me a`breadstorage/slice guide for christmas from and so far it's worked out well. Thank you for the recipe.
