Cooking time:

Ingredients

2 1/4c warm water
2T sugar
2tsp salt
4T oil ( I use olive oil)
1T or 1 pkg yeast
5-6 C flour

Method

In large bowl mix water, sugar, salt and oil until dissolved. Then sprinkle on top the yeast and then flour.

Mix together, form into a ball, cover with saran wrap then clean dry dish towels. put in warm place to rise.

When dough has doubled in size, punch down and knead for 5 - 10 minutes or until dough feels like it's fighting back. Form into 2 loaves, put in grease pans, grease top and let rise again. When doubled in size, pop into oven until golden brown all over and sounds hollow when bottom is tapped.

Variations:
Cut and shape into rolls.
During the kneading, add 1 - 2 C grated cheese for to make cheesy buns or bread - really yummy, these dissapear super fast!!
or can add mixed fruit and raisins for fruit bread
