Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
WOW! This was my very first time baking bread & It was EASY, FUN & came out PERFECT. I took some advise and used only 1/4 cup sugar. I also opted to use light olive oil in place of the vegetable oil. The best advice I took was to be patient and let the yeast foam up real good. Make sure the water for the yeast and sugar is warm enough, about as warm as you would make a baby bottle. Be patient with the yeast! If it looks foamy and smells like bread it is active. I also followed a great suggestion to help my dough rise by putting a pre-boiled, large pot of water in the oven (oven turned off) with the oven light on to make sure it had a good rise since it was pretty cold here in Wisconsin. I used a clean spray bottle with regular water to mist the loafs every 10 mins, this gave my bread a nice color and ensured no burning =) My kids and hubby loved it! MAKE THIS BREAD! even if it is your first time, it won't be your last. Good luck.
