I usually make my favorite (Our Favorite Wheat Bread) but when I make white I use this recipe. I really like the color and flavor the eggs add to it. It makes excellent toast too.
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 2 cups warm water
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 6 1⁄2-7 cups flour
- Dissolve yeast in water in large bowl. (I usually add a pinch of sugar and wait for the yeast to foam but the original recipe didn't call for this step.).
- Add next 4 ingredients and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth.
- Stir in remaining flour.
- Knead 6-8 minutes.
- Let rise in greased bowl until double.
- Divide into 3 loaves; let raise again.
- Bake at 375°F for 25-30 minutes.
And yet another addition. This time, I made a sponge first of the water, the yeast & some flour and sugar. Let it sit out for about 2 hours. Then continued with the recipe.It's fantastic! Even the last time I made this bread, I forgot the oil and it still turned out great. I think, for me anyway, it is a great, foolproof recipe ;) ********************************************* I had to add to my last review, as I just made this bread again. I think it's just a matter of personal tastes; our family prefers a less yeasty bread. This one fits the bill perfectly, we LOVE IT! I wish I could give it more stars, though ;) Thanks again, Marg! Absolutely wonderful! I used half milk, half water and sunflower oil. Because the amount of the flour was not exact, I used 6 cups of flour in the recipe and a half cup on the board for kneading. I followed Marg's tip on adding a pinch of sugar and waiting for the yeast to foam. I loved the idea to mix half the flour with the other ingredients until smooth, then hand mixed the rest of the flour. This bread is a combination of slight richness because of the eggs, yet light and lovely to the palate! I actually used this recipe for calzones and the rest I separated into 4 portions & froze for pizza dough. Thanks so much, it will be my regular recipe now! :)
Perfect! I didn't change a thing and wouldn't change a thing. Faster and easier than many other recipes, and the flavor and texture are ideal. The only problem is there's not enough room in my stomach to hold as much as my mouth wants to eat.
Oh my goodness! I am new to bread baking so I am trying "easy" recipes. This is by far the easiest and BEST bread I have ever made! This is now my "go to" bread for everything, I made a loaf, dinner rolls AND cinnamon rolls out of this and am amazed and how light and fluffy they all turned out!! My neighbor is not happy because she keeps coming back for more! Better her than me I guess. I dont bake so that I can eat all of it, I bake because I enjoy it so much and then I get it out of my house before I become as big as a house. LOL. I will never buy bread again! Thank you for sharing this!!!!
