Sad to say it had been a while since I made a Tasty Tuesday post, but it’s finally here! I am not sure how consistent they will be as of right now because I am still a little bit in the grieving process and sometimes I just don’t have the motivation to do things like laundry or cooking fancy foods. Enough of that gushy stuff though, check out this awesome and delicious homemade bread recipe!
This recipe was adopted from my Taste of Home cook book. All credit to them! It does take some time to let the dough rise and what not but the payoff is so amazing you won’t even think about the time. 🙂
Country White Bread
(Yields 2 loaves)
- 2 packages (1/4 oz each) active dry yeast
- 2 cups warm water (110-115 degrees)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 6 1/2-7 cups all-purpose flour
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the sugar, salt, eggs, oil and 3 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch the dough down. Divide it in half and shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9in X 5in loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the loaves from the pan to cool on wire racks.
