2 cups very warm water
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 TBSP yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup oil
5-6 cups bread flour
In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, then add the yeast. Allow the yeast to proof until it is foamy.
Add oil into the yeast. Work in 4 cups of flour and the salt. Dough will be sticky then gradually add more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Do not add too much or your bread will be to hard. Knead the dough on a floured countertop until smooth. Return dough to bowl and cover with a damp towel for one hour.
Punch down the dough. Knead for a few minutes and divide in half. To shape the loaves…flatten the ball of dough and the roll it up tight and place into greased loaf pan with the seam down.
Allow to rise for about 30-45 mins until the bread has come just above the top of the pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 mins.
