Delicious White Bread

We use this recipe for everything! You can use it for breadsticks, pizza dough, rolls, rasin bread, cinnamon rolls, etc. We make it in our bosch but, we used to make it in our bread machine. You could probably make it in a kitchen aid too.

White Bread

3tbs yeast
4 C hot water
3/4 cup sugar

Mix, then add

6 C flour
1/4 ish cup of oil
1/2 tsp salt

Mix well then add
6 C of flour

Mix, check consistancy mix 10 minutes

Shape into loaves or whatever you're going to do with it. Let it rise 20-30 minutes then bake at 350 for 20ish minutes. As soon as they are out of the oven smother the top of the loaves(or rolls) with shortening and put a dish towel on top of them, if you do this it makes the crust soft!

For Rasin Bread add some extra sugar for sweetening, with about 3 cups of rasins(more or less depending on how many you like) with a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon.

For cinnamon rolls just add extra sugar to make them sweet and roll and fill to your preference.
This usually will make 4 loaves of bread, or a pan of rolls and 2 loaves of bread etc.
Mixing for 10 minutes will eliminate the need to knead it.
You can also use honey instead of sugar, wheat flour instead of white, or half of each. You can use shortning instead of oil(it works the exact same) it is just not as healthy. I usually use canola oil, but any kind works.

I'm so excited to try this recipe, Olivia! I have not attempted making bread before--only in a bread maker which doesn't totally count--but I will definitely try this. You make it sound both easy and yummy. And I like easy and yummy. :)
