My Amish Bread in 3 Styles....

Amish White Bread Recipe
[Adapted from]

What you need:

2 cups lukewarm water 
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 TBSP active dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 TBSP vanilla extract
6 cups bread flour


1. In a large bowl, dissolve 2TBSP of sugar in lukewarm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam (about 10 minutes). Then, add the remainder of the sugar.
2. Add in salt and butter into the yeast mixture. Add in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, oil coat the dough to avoid drying. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise about 1 hour or until double in size.
3. Punch dough down and knead for a few more minutes, then divide in half (or even more). Shape into loaves (or the bread styles as you desire), and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans. This time, I used three small pans.
Optional: At this stage, you may wish add fillings of your choice or simply sprinkle with brown sugar, desiccated coconut, cinnamon or what-have-you.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting.

ENJOY the magic of breads!

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by!
