This is my favorite white bread recipe. I have made it for years. It is out of my ward cookbook and it always turns out so soft and moist. Really yummy! It makes a very large batch of bread, six large loaves. Enjoy!
2 cups warm water
6 Tbsp. yeast
4 cups hot water
1 cup sugar or honey
6 Tbsp. oil (I use a 1/3 of a cup and call it good)
2 Tbsp. salt
14-18 cups of flour
Dissolve yeast in 2 cups warm water. Let rise till bubbly. Meanwhile, mix 4 cups very hot water, oil, salt, sugar, and about 4-6 cups flour. Beat well while the yeast rises. Add yeast mixture and start adding flour the rest of the flour. Add the flour until the dough comes away from the edge of the bowl and is clean. I, of course am using a bread mixer to do this. Knead for about 5 minutes after the flour has been added. Cover and let rise until double in size. Divide into 6 pieces and roll into shape. Put into 6 loaf pans that have been sprayed with Pam. Let rise until double again. Bake at 300 for 30 minutes. This bread freezes very well.
