Simple White Bread

These tall golden loaves have wonderful homemade flavor and a texture that also makes this bread ideal for toast and sandwiches. It's a terrific way to round out a hearty penny-pinching meal.—Ruth VonLienen, Marengo, Iowa

  • Makes
    2 loaves (16 slices each)

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 8-1/2 to 9 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of water. Add the remaining water, dry milk, oil, sugar, salt and 3 cups of flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch the dough down. Divide in half; shape into loaves. Place in two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Bake at 375° for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Brush with butter.
