  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the sugar, salt, oil and 1 cup of flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes.
  3. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Divide the dough into twelve equal pieces and form into rounds. Place the rounds on prepared baking sheets. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool.

I loved the taste and texture of this bread. This was my very first bread ever besides banana bread and it turned out great. It compliments my homemade potato soup very well. Thank you!

Versatile is the word!

I like this recipe. I am new at making bread. I don't have a bread machine, so I have to knead. I don't like kneading. This bread is tasty and easy to make.

It was a good one. Sweet. Great texture. Throw an egg on a slice for a good breakfast. I did make a couple tweaks, and I think they helped make a more well rounded loaf: Added: A couple ta...
