Grandma’s Country White Bread Yummy


ingredients

4 cups luke-warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. yeast
1/3 cup oil
1 Tbsp salt
6 - 8 cups unbleached ground white wheat flour - you can use regular all-purpose flour with success as well you will need more flour… closer to 7 cups and it will make a softer less-coarse bread -
-opt. 1 tbsp vital wheat gluten - if using whole white wheat flour -

directions

in a large mixing bowl dissolve yeast in
warm water and sugar let sit 15 minutes add the oil add the salt and flour - starting with 6 cups of flour - mix all together knead the dough thoroughly until all ingredients are incorporated and dough is smooth elastic very slightly sticky and pulls away from the bowl - 6-10 minutes - as you knead the dough you may add more flour as needed and repeat the process until dough reaches the desired consistency

cover the bowl of dough with a dish towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled - an hour or more depending on how warm your kitchen is- you may speed up this process by placing the covered bowl inside the oven with the oven light on and another bowl of warm water sitting on the lower rack
