Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water; add yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Work in 5-6 cups flour. Knead dough on a lightly floured, level surface until smooth. Place in a well-oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat the entire surface. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well-oiled 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. Bake for 30 minutes.

Makes 2 loaves.

  • Outstanding and easy bread. I use 1 cup of whole wheat and 4 cups of bread flour. The 6th cup I use to coat the kneading board and my hands when working the dough. Comes out perfect every time.

  • Which flour is considered bread flour? all-purpose, self rising, stone ground health food store, cake flour?
