Breads from Rina's Kitchen


Grandma VanDoren's White Bread 
Makes 3-1 1/2 pound loaves

3 cups warm water
3 tablespoons yeast
3 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup white sugar
8 cups bread flour
                   
1. In a large bowl, combine warm water, yeast, salt, oil,
   sugar, and 4 cups flour. Mix thoroughly, and let sponge
   rise until doubled in size. 
2. Gradually add about 4 cups flour, kneading until smooth.
   Place dough in a greased bowl, and turn several times to
   coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled. 
3. Punch down the dough, let it rest a few minutes. Divide
   dough into three equal parts. Shape into loaves, and place
   in three 8 1/2 x 4 1/2" greased bread pans. Let rise until
   almost doubled. 
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-45 mins. The loaves may need
   to be covered for the last few minutes with foil to prevent
   excess browning.
