  • 2 cups warm water (about 110° F)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 cups bread flour


  • 1
    In large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Stir in yeast. Allow to proof until mixture resembles a creamy foam.
  • 2
    Mix salt and oil into the yeast mixture. Add flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in well oiled bowl, turning dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • 3
    Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into two loaves. Place into well oiled loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.

    Bake at 350° F for 30 minutes.
