This Recipe is: Dairy Free, Egg Free, Vegetarian
Cuisine Type: American
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
1/4 vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour (white or whole wheat)
In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.
Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9×5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
