Homemade Amish White Bread

On Thursday I mentioned that you’d be seeing a few more recipes from my blogging friend Bunny of Bunny’s Warm Oven. I’ve been looking for a good white bread and I think I finally found it! Everyone in the family enjoyed this bread. A great flavor, wonderful toasted and as you can see below, it made fabulous grilled cheese! Everyone was happy with this bread, an absolute keeper. Because it is homemade, you will want to use it for sandwiches the first day, then French toast, grilled cheese and breakfast toast the next, otherwise it begins to fall apart (as sandwich bread). Thanks for another winner Bunny!

Bunny had made some adjustments to this recipe and I followed her suggestions. It was perfect. If you would like to try the original recipe, you can access it on All Recipes.

Homemade Amish White Bread
adapted from AllRecipes.com

1 c. warm water (110 degrees)
1 c. warm milk (110 degrees)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. sugar 
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. active dry yeast
6 c. bread flour 

In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam. Stir the 1 c. of warm milk in now. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Using the dough hook on a mixer or with a wooden spoon by hand, mix in flour, one cup at a time. Knead until smooth.

Place dough in well oiled bowl; turn to coat top. Let rise about 1 hour.

Punch dough down, knead a few times. Divide dough in half.

Shape into loaves and place into 2 greased 9×5-inch loaf pans. Allow to rise 30 minutes or until dough has risen about 1″ above pans.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from pans immediately. Brush the top of the loaves with a little melted butter right after you take them out of the pans so that the crust stays nice and soft.

Mmmmm! Grilled Cheese!

Butter topped :)
