Amish Bread Recipe

I got this recipe from another cruiser our first year of cruising and I have used it ever since.  The recipe was given was for two loafs but this recipe is for one loaf.

Amish Bread

1 c warm water, 110 degrees

1/3 c sugar

1 pkg dry yeast or equivalent

3/4 t salt

1/8 c oil

3 cups bread flour

Dissolve sugar into warm water.  Sprinkle yeast on top ( I usually gentle stir to get yeast wet). Cover, put in warm place ( I put it in sun) and let proof ( it will look foamy).  After yeast is foamy, add salt and oil and gently, gently stir.  Add flour one cup at a time.  Knead and form ball.  Place dough in oiled bowl, cover place in warm place and let rise.  After dough has doubled, punch down knead just enough to form ball without air pockets and put in well oil pan either loaf or I use a round stainless steel pot ( I have the removable handle stacking pots and I use the 2 qt pot.  Cover and let rise (should double in size).  Place in preheat 350 oven and cook for 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown.  YUM!IMG_9489
