Amish white bread

2 White Bread

Servings: 2 pieces of bread
Approximate cost: $ 0.50 / bread

Two beautiful big loaves with super light crumbs for less than $ 1.00. I'll really have to be in a hurry to pay top dollar at the grocery store for fresh bread again. The smell that floated in my house when I took the bread out of the oven was so enticing… To be repeated, often!


  • 2 cups of lukewarm water
  • cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp. active dry yeast
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • cups of flour


Place the yeast in the bowl of the stand mixer. Add about 1 tsp. sugar (from 1/3 cup) and about ¼ cup water (from 2 cups).

Mix well and let stand for about 10 minutes or until the mixture has doubled.

Add 4 cups flour, salt, sugar, remaining water, and oil to the yeast mixture. Mix on speed 1.

 Scrape the sides of the bowl and turn to speed 2. Gradually add flour, ½ cup at a time, until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl and stays in a ball on the hook.

 Continue kneading on speed 2 for about 2 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic but still slightly tacky.

Take a large bowl and spray it with cooking spray. Place the dough in the bowl and turn it over to oil well. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. 

Place in the oven with the light on with a bowl of very hot water nearby. Let rise for about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

When the dough is ready, punch and place the dough on a floured surface. Divide the dough into 2 pieces.

Form a rectangle of dough with your hands and roll the dough lightly to make a roll.

Grease 2 9x5 loaf tins and place the loaves, seam side down, in the tins. Put in the oven to allow it to rise (same technique as when it was first raised) for about 30 minutes or until the dough exceeds the top of the mold by about 1 inch.

Bake at 350° F for 30 to 40 minutes.

It is also served for breakfast with Amish Jam.
