    Wet Ingredients
    2 cups warm water (almost hot)
    4 tsp. yeast
    1 tbsp sugar

    Combine together and let rise for 5 minutes.

    Dry Ingredients

    1/4 cup oil
    5 cups bread flour
    2 tsp. salt

    Shaping and Rising:
    rolling pin
    loaf pans or cookie sheet

    hot oven
    cooling rack

    Cooking Instructions

    Add to yeast mixture and knead until smooth and elastic. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer w/ the dough hook to do this. If you have a mixer with a dough hook, it makes this process MUCH easier! Cover and let rise for 20-25 minutes. Then punch dough down and make into 2 loaves.

    Here's the trick to get your bread to come out right. You need to roll out the bread into a rectangle, then roll up into a loaf, like you would when making cinnamon rolls. Lightly slice top of bread to get diagonal cut look when baked. Let loaves rise (I put my loaves on separate cookie sheets) for 20-25 minutes.

    Bake on 350° for 20-25 minutes, until top of loaves are golden brown. Let bread cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
