Simple Bread Recipe

This recipe was given to me by my dad and I love it!




3 c flour 
1 1/2 tsp yeast
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c warm water, remove -3tbsp (can vary depending on level of altitude/moisture in atmosphere)
4 tsp oil


I used my bread machine to mix it, made it even simpler. But if you do not have a bread machine, mix dry ingredients, and then add wet and mix well using your hands. Knead dough for apprx 15mins and then let the dough rest and rise for apprx 30 mins and the knead again for 15mins. 

Take dough, should be moist but not sticky, and place on floured surface. Fold dough a few times, then fold the ends in and then the 'top' again. Lay dough in a lightly greased loaf pan seam down and cover with a light towel. Keep at room temp to help the dough rise. Usually takes about an hour to an hour and half to rise about inch to inch and half over the edge of the pan. 



Preheat oven to 375 degrees. When bread is risen, bake at 375 for 30-35 mins.  Let cool and then remove from pan. Keep in a sealed bagged for about a week. You can make several loaves and freeze before baking or after.
