recipe: traditional amish bread

Makes 2 loaves

Ingredients:

2 cups warm water
1/2 cup white sugar
1 ½ tbsp active dry yeast
1 ½ tsp salt
¼ cup canola oil
6 cups all purpose flour

Steps: 

1. Mix the warm water and sugar in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved. Next, stir in the yeast and set aside for at least 10 minutes, or until mixture becomes quite foamy. Then add salt, oil, and flour one cup at a time until the dough forms a nice consistency.

2. Remove from bowl and knead on a floured surface. Once smooth, place in a large, oiled bowl, coating the dough once over. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for approximately one hour.

3. Punch the dough down, then remove from bowl. Cut in half. Form into two smooth loaves, and place each one in a well-oiled loaf pan. Cover, and let rise for an additional 30 minutes.

4. Place both in oven and bake at 350°F for around 40 minutes. Do not refrigerate.

      Oh thank you! It’s so delicious. We made another batch last night- one loaf and 12 buns. You can also turn this into a recipe for dinner rolls! And it’s vegan. ☺️
