This classic recipe yields two loaves of delicious bread that are perfect for sandwiches, toast, or simply enjoying on its own. Follow these simple steps to create your own freshly baked loaves of Amish goodness.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp active dry yeast

Directions:

In a medium-sized bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water and add yeast. Allow it to proof until it becomes frothy and creamy.

Add warm milk to the yeast mixture and mix well.

Gradually add 1 cup of flour and mix until combined. Continue adding flour, approximately 1 cup at a time, until a soft dough forms.

Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour.

Punch down the dough and divide it into two equal parts. Shape each part into a loaf and place them in greased loaf pans. Cover and let them rise again until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the loaves for about 30 minutes or until they are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Brush the tops of the loaves with melted butter for a soft crust. Allow the bread to cool on wire racks before slicing and serving.
