Amish White Bread


I love baking bread and thanks to DomesticLady I am not using my machine 🙂 Please click here for her blog. I have had a love affair with my machine but got the guts up so to speak to try it by hand.. I do have a kitchenaide mixer so that makes it easier..


here is the recipe she gives for Amish White Bread

2 cups warm water (warm to the write but not hot)

1/4 cup white sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup vegetable oil

6 cups bread flour





Dissolve water in warm water in a large mixing bowl

Stir in yeast nad allow to rise.

Add salt and oil to yeast after the yeast has risen. It will look foamy and creamy.


Kneading Directions with Kitchen Aid

Add two cups flour to Kitchen Aid bowl

Pour in yeast mixture

Mix gently

Switch to kneading attachment

Add rest of flour one cup at a time ( I added the sugar at this point as well)

Knead for 2 minutes.


Kneading Directions by Hand

Add flour one cup at a time mixing after each cup, the dough on lightly floured surface and knead dough until smooth.

Kneading. Put heals of hand into dough firmly pushing, grab dough farthers from you and pull it towards you and fold dough in half, turn dough a quarter turn and begin again. Continue til  dough is smooth adding small amounts of flour to surace so dough does not stick. This process will add air to the dough and help it rise, and will take about 5 minutes.


Place oil in bowl and coat

Place dough in oiled bowl and flip to coat both sides of dough.

Cover with damp cloth

Allow to rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half.

Shape into loaves.

Place into two well oiled 9×5 loaf pans.

Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in warm place until doubled about 30 minutes.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350


Enjoy! If you try this, please let me know and thankDomesticLady!~
