    Your bread looks so tasty! Have you posted this bread recipe before (with any kind of sweetner)? I'd like to try making your bread. If you've posted it, what's it called and I'll look it up. Thanks!

    It is a basic white bread

    Bread

    7-10 cups flour 1/4 cup sugar
    1 Tbs salt 2 pck. yeast
    3 cup water 1/3 cup olive oil(or peanut)

    Heat water to 110°, put salt, sugar, and yeast in a bowl and pour water over and add oil, stir with wire whip until dissolved.

    First Kneed:
    Stir in 4 cups of flour until mixed well. Add more flour until you have a stiff dough and then kneed until dough is smooth and elastic (3-8 minutes).

    Cover and let rise about one hour.

    Punch down and kneed until smooth. Divide dough into thirds, shape into 3 loaves and let rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour) and then bake at 400° for 20-30 minutes. Bread is done when the bottom sounds hollow when you tap it and internal temperature is 195 to 205 degrees.

    Variations:
    Replace Sugar with Molasses, Honey, Raw Sugar or etc.

    Up to half of the flour can be replaced with other types of flour or nuts and etc. Whole Wheat flour will absorb more water, so let the first kneed be a bit sticky.

    Optional: Add 2 tbl. Of potato flour with the flour.

    Optional: Add 2 tsp malt powder to the water mixture.

    Each cup of water will make one loaf of bread. Adjust the ingredient amounts to match the number of loaves you want.

    Simple and delicious!

    Thanks for sharing that @ronott1 , sometimes it's good to have a white sandwich bread on hand (and I bet it makes good toast). I'll let you know how it goes!
