Easier to make than you might think. The aroma of bread baking in the oven is topped only by the taste of a slice still warm from the oven with butter seeping into it......aahhh.

  • 2.5 cups warm water 110 to 115 degrees
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 6 1/4 cups to 6 3/4all purpose flour

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each into a loaf. Place in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
