  1. 2 cups warm water (110 to 115 degrees F)
  2. 2/3 cup white sugar
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  5. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  6. 6 cups bread flour (or all-purpose flour)


  1. Yeast Mixture: In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in the yeast. Allow to proof until the yeast resembles a creamy foam, about 10 minutes.
  2. Mixing Ingredients: Mix salt and oil into the yeast mixture. Mix in flour one cup at a time.
  3. Kneading: Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. This should take about 8 minutes.
  4. Rising: Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl, and turn it to coat the surface. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Shaping: Punch down the dough, and knead for a few minutes. Divide it into two equal parts and shape into loaves. Place these in two lightly greased 9×5 inch loaf pans.
  6. Second Rising: Allow the dough to rise for 30 minutes, or until the dough has risen 1 inch above the pans.
  7. Baking: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 30 minutes. The loaves should have a golden crust.
  8. Cooling: Cool the bread on wire racks before slicing.
