Who needs to buy bread anymore?!

Why anyone would buy bread after trying out this recipe is beyond me! This bread is oh so yummy and I totally recommend you make it! I used my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer to knead the dough because well..I'm lazy like that and hate to knead dough!
Amish White Bread

2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour

In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. 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 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

Makes two loaves. I freeze one for later use, so it stays fresh. Makes INCREDIBLE French Toast!

This is one of my favorite bread recipes. I made it last week for a friend and have been dreaming about it ever since, LOL.

I will have to try it later, I love my bread machine and I have a great recipe that we love already, but I am always up for trying a new one. :)
