Country White Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6-1/2 to 7 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar, salt, eggs, oil and 3 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch down dough. Divide in half and shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9×5-in. loaf pans. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375°.
  4. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
