Around here we make tons of soup for the long cold winter days. I recently saw an article about making homemade bread and how easy it was and how well it pairs with a bowl of winter soup. I did some research and found a really easy recipe for making homemade bread. Just a few ingredients, a bread pan and hot oven and voila!!! Last weekend my son had a bunch of college friends come and stay with us. We had just made 2 loaves of this bread. OMG!! They could not get enough…they LOVED it. I did feel a little like Little House on the Prairie and that we might be churning our own butter next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HA!!! But honestly, the bread was a total winner!!!! Give it a try this weekend!!! Bon Appetit!!!!!!
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each into a loaf. Place in two greased 9×5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes.
Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
