Amish White Bread


This is a must make!  The first yeast bread I ever made was this very recipe. I got this recipe from and it is amazing folks! This bread is somewhat sweet and has a lovely flavor. Even though it has a sweet side, it is perfect for sandwiches. In fact we used it today for chicken sandwiches at lunch. When I make this bread, I undercook it by four minutes. I think it keeps it from getting dried out in the oven. Please make it and let me know how it turns out!

Amish White Bread


2 cups of water

2/3 cup of sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons of active dry yeast

1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

1/4 cup of vegetable oil

6 cups of flour


In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water and then stir in the yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam. Mix salt and oil into 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 damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes and divide dough in half. Shape into loaves and place in well oiled 9 by 5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes or until dough is 1 inch over pans.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden brown. (I bake for 26 minutes.)
