Amish White Bread

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Bread Machine Breads
Daily Bread Mailing List Dough Cycle
Hand Made White Breads

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/4 tsp dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
-- (105-115 degrees F)
1/3 c. sugar
2 tsp salt
2 c warm water
-- (105-115 degrees F)
2 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter
6 c unbleached white bread flour -- (6 to 7)

- (Makes 2 loaves)

*Okay--now this *isn't* the Amish friendship bread that has the starter.
*If you let a bread machine do the kneading, put the yeast in first, then the sugar/honey and salt, the rest of the dry ingredients, then the wet ingredients.

**Dissolve yeast in 1/2 c water with a pinch of the sugar. In large bowl, combine sugar, salt, water and butter. Add yeast mixture. Gradually add flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise about 2 hours, or until doubled. Punch down. (This would be the time to do your third rising) Divide into two portions and form loaves. Place in greased bread pans. Prick tops with fork (I never do this and it comes out just fine). Let rise in warm place until higher than pans (about 2 hours). Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Butter tops of loaves (I also never do this because I'm trying to cut back a little on fat). Place pans on sides until loosened. Remove bread and cool completely.
---
I finally made this bread to check it out. My husband, who doesn't get enough white bread from me :), pronounced it delicious. I find it to be a very good basic white bread with a nice close grain.
