Grandma's Country White Bread - Quick, easy and great tasting!!

*Ingredients :

°Warm water: 3 cups
°Sugar: 1/4 cup
°Yeast: 1 1/2 tsp.
°Oil: 1/3 cup
°Salt: 1 tbsp.

Unbleached ground white wheat flour: 6 to 7 cups (Regular all-purpose flour is also fine; about 8 cups more flour will be needed. This will result in softer, less coarse bread.)
Vital Wheat Gluten: 1 tbsp. (only if using whole white wheat flour)

* Directions :

1. Start by dissolving the yeast, in a large mixing bowl, in lukewarm water and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. You will want to add the oil, salt, and flour (starting with 6 cups of flour) and mix everything well.
3. Now knead the dough thoroughly for 6-10 minutes, or until everything is incorporated (that's right, until the dough is smooth, elastic, very slightly sticky and pulls away from the bowl) .
4. While kneading the dough, be sure to add more flour as needed. And please repeat the process until the paste reaches your desired consistency.
5. Using a kitchen towel or plastic wrap, cover the bowl with the dough. Let rise until doubled, it takes at least 1 hour depending on the heat of your kitchen. It is wise to place the covered bowl inside the oven with the oven light on and another bowl of warm water sitting on the lower rack to speed up this process.

Enjoy !
