2 hours. Fills 2 loaf pans (half recipe fills 1 regular & 1 small loaf pan).
¾ c sugar
3 c warm water
4 ½ tsp or 2 pckg yeast
½ c oil
1 egg, beaten
3 tsp salt
8 c flour
Combine sugar, water and yeast in mixing bowl. Let stand 10 min. Combine oil and egg. Add to yeast. Stir in salt and 4 c flour.* Add enough of remaining flour to make soft-sticky dough; not too sticky. Cover and let rise until double in size ~45 min. Knead on floured surface. Shape into 3-4 round loaves** or use 2 loaf pans. (Half recipe: 1 lg, 1 sm pan.) Let rise 30-45 min. Bake at 350° about 25-35 min until light brown and set in middle. Butter top. Works great for French toast!
*Can add raisins, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Butter helps.
**On my mission, we didn't have bread pans, so just shaped the loaves by hand.
