Amish White Bread

We all know my husband loves bread of any kind, so I am always on the hunt for a new homemade bread recipe.  I came across this one a few weeks ago and made it a few days later.  Ahhhh, the smell of fresh baked bread in the kitchen, so lovely, and it pairs so nicely with beef stew on a cold fall evening that is quickly turning to winter.  This recipe was a huge hit in my house, I hope you like it!  

Amish White Bread
Recipe adapted from Allrecipes.com

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 3 cups flour

Amish White Bread
Recipe adapted from Allrecipes.com
Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 3 cups flour
Directions
In a glass measuring cup, dissolve the sugar in the warm water, then stir in yeast.  Let the mixture sit for about five minutes to proof until it gets foamy.
In a stand mixer, mix together the oil, salt, and  1 cup of flour.  Add in the yeast/water/sugar mixture.  Slowly add in the remaining two cups of flour.  Mix well until a cohesive dough mixture forms.  It should not be sticky and should clump together in a ball. 
Place in an oiled bowl and turn once to coat.  Cover with a damp cloth and let the dough rise for one hour until double in bulk.  Punch the dough down and knead briefly.  Shape into a loaf and place in a greased 9x5 loaf pan.  Allow to rise for 30 more minutes (dough should be about 1 inch above the top of the loaf pan).  
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Let cool before slicing.
Enjoy!


The original recipe makes a double batch, if you don't need two loaves of bread, make the recipe according to the directions, let it rise the first time, then divide in half.  Place half in a loaf pan and let rise and bake that loaf.  For the other half of the dough, wrap it in plastic wrap, and place in a freezer ziploc bag.  You can save the dough for another time!  Take the dough out of the freezer in the morning and place in the fridge, when you are ready to bake, unwrap the dough and place it in a loaf pan, let rise for 30-45 minutes in a warm place, and then bake as directed.  
The measurements for two loaves of bread are listed below. 

  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees)
  • 1/3-2/3 cup white sugar (1/3 cup makes it sweet enough)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 6 cups flour.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing your bread recipe at last weeks Saturday Spotlight on Angels Homestead, I've been making this same recipe, only substituting butter for the oil, for my family for years and they love it.

    Hope to see you again soon!

  10. Hi, I'm not trying to be cheeky, but Amish don't have electricity therefore they can't use a stand mixer. How would one make it if they didn't have a stand mixer either? Thank you. Gemmie

    1. Hi Gem, you can easily mix the dough by hand in a bowl, then knead it on a floured countertop.
