No Fail Yeast Bread
5 cups warm water
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 tablespoon salt
1 cup honey or 3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoon yeast
3 tablespoon dough enhancer, (optional)
11 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
This recipe is easiest if a large mixer is used. If a mixer is unavailable,
dough may be kneaded by hand.
Combine water, oil, salt, sugar (or honey) and dough enhancer. Add yeast, mix.
Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 8 - 10 minutes. Flour hands
and remove from mixer.
Divide into 4 parts. Shape each part into a loaf and place into greased loaf
pans. Cover and allow to rise until dough is 1 inch above pan. Preheat oven to
350 degrees. Bake 30 min.
NOTE: A nice variation is to make sweet rolls. Take 1 or 2 of the pieces of
bread dough divided to make a loaf. Roll each portion of dough out into a 14 x 8
inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Brush with 1-2 tablespoons softened
butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up dough. Cut into 1 inch
slices and place on greased baking pan. Allow to rise until double in bulk. Bake
Recipe makes 4 loaves.
