How to make Simple and easy white bread

This bread is so easy - anyone can make it!
Note: This is not a bread machine recipe.

1. Mix together the water, yeast, and sugar in a  bowl.

2. Add the salt to the 3 cups of flour in a large bowl.

3. Mix the liquid and the dry together and then add the oil.

4. Mix until it comes away from the sides of the bowl, sprinkle some of the last cup of flour on a wooden surface, and knead. Keep adding flour as needed, kneading for about 10 min.

5. Scrape the big bowl clean and coat it with a small bit of oil. Add the dough and cover with a clean tea towel. Place it in a warm spot to rise till doubled in bulk, 1-2 hours.

6. When it has risen, punch the dough down and tip out onto the counter. Roll it out into a rectangle. (about 9 inch x 18 inch)

7. Roll it up, tuck in the ends, and place it into a greased bread loaf pan or glass baking dish.

8. Cover and let rise again, till doubled in size. 45 min - 1 hour. (it takes time!)

9. Once risen, brush the top with a bit of beaten egg, and bake for 30 min at 375 (f).

10. Once cooked, remove the bread from the pan immediately and place on a rack to cool.

This makes a wicked toast!

    I'm sure that this recipe will turn out great, mine is rising as we speak. However, you must use at least 6 cups of flour. I never dreamed that "plus more for kneading" would turn into 3 extra cups. Other than that everything has gone smoothly! I'll let you know how it turns out.

    that's interesting! I made one just the other day and 3 cups almost seemed too much! But there have been days when I've added a lot more when kneading, and sometimes a lot less. I hope it comes out well!

    Your bread looks so nice! I'm going to try bread today, but my recipe is old and doesn't have oven temperatures. Hopefully mine will turn out as good as yours.
