I have discussed here before about my "fear" of yeast. I think though that I now have overcome that fear. Last year I started working on learning how to make bread. I made the bread in a bag several times. This was a teaching kids to bake bread recipe. I have mastered that recipe so it is time to move on. This was a simple recipe that is mixed entirely with the mixer. Even better you throw everything in at one time. No proofing the yeast. But more on that in a minute.
This recipe called for making it on a cookie sheet but next time I think I will make it in a loaf pan. I still like the pretty loaves.
After that one minute see if you need to add a little more water. I did add just a little bit more. Then mix for an additional 5 minutes. Set a timer because you do want it to mix that long. Use the dough hook on the mixer.
5 1/4 cups bread flour
2-4 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons yeast
1 1/2 Tablespoons oil
2 cups warm water
