Easy Bread Recipe

Preheat oven to 350

  • 10 1/2 cups white bread flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar or 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 TBSP salt
  • 3 TBSP rounded saf-instant yeast
  • 3 TBSP liquid lecithin (approximate, do not measure) or 4 TBSP oil
  • 4 cups hot water
Mix dry ingredients. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry, add more water. If dough is too moist, add more flour. Once consistency is reached, mix for 5 minutes. Do not add more water or flour after this time. Spray counter and pans (4) with pam. Shape loaves and cover with a dish towel. Raise 25 minutes then bake for 25 minutes. Makes 4 loaves.

Unraised loaves can be frozen for later use.

May use whole wheat flour instead of white flour. Just add one cup of applesauce as PART of the hot tap water. mix for 10 minutes.
May also use dough for rolls (16-24 rolls), bread sticks, or cream cheese braids.
Pizza crust(makes 4): do not raise dough and cook for 18-20 minutes at 400 or 450.
