Before my husband bought me my stand mixer, I tried this recipe for a simple white bread. (You can find it on It is very simple to make and tastes amazingly wonderful for such a straight forward recipe. Served buttered alongside homemade chicken noodle soup, it was the perfect addition to our meal.

Amish White Bread
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 24 slices (2 loaves)
  • 2 cups warm water (about 110 degrees)
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • 1&1/2 Tablespoons active dry yeast (2 packets)
  • 1&1/2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 6 cups bread flour
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in the hot water. Add the yeast and stir. Let set atleast 10 minutes until   it looks foamy and creamy.
  2. Add the salt and oil and stir. Stir in the flour, adding one cup at a time and stirring at each addition. The last cup may be difficult to stir in, so dump the mixture with the extra flour on a clean surface. Knead for several minutes until smooth and elastic.
  3. Spray a large bowl with non-stick cooking spray. Put dough in bowl, flip over so both sides have been covered with the spray. Cover with a warm damp cloth and let sit in a warm place for 1 hour.
  4. Punch dough down. Knead for a couple more minutes. Divide dough in half and place each half into a greased loaf pan. Spread to sides. Return loaf pans to warm place and let rise another 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when knocked with knuckles. Immediately remove from pans and let cool on a wire rack.
