I love this recipe--it has never failed ever. My family and friends always beg for 1 loaf to them self.

  1. Dissolve sugar in lukewarm water. Sprinkle yeast over liquid and let rise in a warm place for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except flour and baking powder. Sift flour and baking powder if desired (baking powder will add extra lightness to the bread).
  3. Add flour mixture to liquid mixture bit by bit. Knead into a smooth dough. Place in a greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk.
  4. Punch down and let rise again till double in bulk.
  5. Punch down again and shape into 4 loafs. Place into greased 8x4x3 inch loaf pans.
  6. Cover and let rise till dough has raise over the top of pan.
  7. Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes, until golden brown. When done, bread will sound hollow when tapped with finger.

I don't understand how the yeast is suppost to live? If there is only 1 t. sugar and 4 t. salt won't the salt over take the sugar and kill the yeast? Also wouldn't you need more yeast? 2T for 4 loaves of bread seems small. I would love to try this recipe if anyone has any helpful hints. Thanks.

This was ok. I had a problem with the amount. The dough is hard to work with because of the volume. I would have to work with the recipe to get the amount right for something we would be able to eat before it goes bad.
