I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

White Bread (an elder on my mission)

$1.85; $0.93 per loaf

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.
