Nothing warms your heart nor perks up your nose as much as the smell of fresh bread baking in your oven. This recipe is a no-fail comfort food that a beginning, intermediate or advanced baker will enjoy making.
Using my kitchen aid mixer, put in the 2 Tbsp. yeast and add 4 cups of the flour. Mix well and ensure this is well blended.
In another mixing bowl, combine the water, sugar, oil, salt and eggs.
On the #2 setting, or low, slowly add in the liquids to the flour and yeast mixture. Now with the mixer on, add the remaining flour, one cup at a time. Knead until a soft dough is formed. Remove from the Kitchenaid bowl and place in a well-oiled mixing bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place. After about 30 minutes, punch down and let rise again until double.
This dough is now ready to be shaped into loaves for bread, buns or used in your favourite recipes. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25-30 minutes.
