Amish White Bread


  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6 cups bread flour , sifted


  • Combine water and sugar in a large bowl and sprinkle with yeast. Let sit for 5-10 minutes. Add salt and canola oil and mix. Add flour one cup at a time, stirring until dough is too thick to stir anymore. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead in any remaining flour. Knead until dough is smooth, about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and turn dough in the bowl to fully coat in the oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour. Punch down the dough and knead for 4-5 minutes. Cut dough in half and shape into bread loaves. Preheat oven to 350F and generously grease two 9 x 5 inch bread pans with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer loaves into the bread pans and let rise for another 30 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes and let cool completely before slicing.
