Amish White Bread
This is a super sweet bread. Also, if it is dense don't worry, it is supposed to be that dense. The only problem you'll have is you might not bake it for long enough, causing it to have patches of doughy.
Measure 2 cups of warm water. Make sure your water is between 110° and 130°F. It can't be lower or higher, or else your yeast won't grow.
Once your water is to that degree, add 2/3 cup white sugar...
And 1 1/2 Tbsp. of active dry yeast. Let is poof until it looks foamy, then mix 1 1/2 tsp. salt and1/4 cup melted butter in the yeast mixture. (The recipe said to do vegetable oil, but I like to use butter instead)
Mix 6 cups of all purpose white flour into the yeast mixture 1 cup at a time. Stir until it is all combined.
Knead the dough until it is elastic, and you can slowly pull it apart without it tearing. Approx. 15 minutes.
Place in a large bowl, and cover with saran wrap.
Place in a warm place for an hour.
While waiting for the dough to rise, grease your loaf pans.
After the 1 hour is up, knead the dough again for a few minutes, then divide and conquer! Just kidding. You don't conquer the dough. You just divide it in half then place in your well greased loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 more minutes.
During this time you preheat oven to 350°F.
After the dough has risen until it is about an inch above the pan, get them into the oven and bake them for another 30 minutes.
Lol, seems like I'm not as good at dividing the bread as I thought. One of them got a little bigger than the other. :)
Anyways, there you have it! A deliciously sweet bread, a little more dense than bread usually is but hey, it tastes delicious with butter, or jam, or sandwich meat, or anything you want to put on your bread. You could even put Dorito stuffed, chocolate covered, bacon wrapped, Oreos on the bread. (Ya, I am totally sure that is a thing :P )
