f you can’t find bread anywhere, bake your own! This is my go-to recipe! I make it frequently for my kids because it’s quick, easy, and it comes out amazing every single time. It’s also fun to make it with your kids and let them do the mixing and kneading and check the rising. This makes 2 loaves.
2 Cups warm water (*think baby bath water)
? Cups white sugar See More
1½ Tablespoons yeast
1½ Teaspoons salt
¼ cup vegetable oil (or use melted butter in place)
6 cups all purpose flour (give or take)
Place sugar and water in a bowl, mix together.
Sprinkle with yeast and let dissolve 5-15 minutes. It should get frothy. Add the salt, oil (or butter) and half the flour mix together using a stand mixer or hand mixer.
Add remaining flour. Change to dough hook and mix till its pulling away from the sides. (Or just use your hands)
Pull out onto lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes. (Kids love this part).
Place in greased bowl flipping to cover both sides.
Top with saran wrap or damp warm towel
Set aside in draft free area and let rise till doubles in size. About 1 hour.
Remove cover and punch down.
Lay out on lightly floured surface and cut in half.
Flaten out into rectangle and "jelly" roll into a loaf.
Pinch ends together and place in greased 9x5 bread pan.
Repeat with other half.
Cover and let rise again until double in size (about 30-50 minutes).
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Once double in size, bake for 25-30 minutes.
Pull out and brush top with butter.
Let rest 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
