WHITE BREAD RECIPE
1 TBSP. active dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1 TBSP. sugar
5-1/2 cups flour
2 tspn. salt
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water, which should feel pleasantly warm when dropped on the wrist. Whisk in the sugar. Add 2 cups of the flour into the bowl. Whisk the mixture well, then let it ''proof'' , or sit it 10 minutes. If tiny bubbles appear and the batter looks slightly expanded, you're on the right track.
Stir in the salt, then add the remaining flour, 1 cup at a time. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured countertop. Knead for ten minutes.
Place the dough ball in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a draft free area for 1 to 2 hours, or has doubled in size! Punch the dough down .
Cut the dough into proper sizes according to the object being made and knead the air bubbles out again. Put the pieces together like a puzzle very close to each other in a greased, deep baking pan and apply egg wash (1 egg and 2 TBLS water whisked together) to the top of the bread with a pastry brush..Cover the pan with plastic again and let rise for about 45 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes until golden brown.
