Fabulous Bread- No Seriously It’s Fabulous!

As suggested by the title, this recipe is fabulous! BTW- the recipe came with the title, this is not something we are making up! We got this recipe a long time ago from a lady on the Five In A Row homeschool forums. But my Mom can’t remember her name. Once you make this bread, you will wonder how you survived without it! What’s great about it is that it’s very forgiving. I made a mistake once while making it and thought it would be ruined and I kept checking the oven every 5 minutes to see how it was doing. But despite my worries it turned out fine!

My Nana was here visiting with my cousin for a few days and she made her famous stuffed peppers that my Dad talks about all the time! The next day we got Carol Lee donuts- yum!! I introduced Nana to Pinterest and we both spent several hours oohing and ahhhhing over all the good ideas and recipes! So many good times were enjoyed last week! As a side to her delicious stuffed peppers we made this bread and it was a hit all around! So I decided now is a good time to put it on my blog so she can pin it this!

Now this recipe does call for a Kitchen-aid mixer but we made it by hand because our mixer is broken. 🙂 Oh, It is also fabulous (hehe) as French toast!

Fabulous Bread


2 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tb yeast
3 Tb sugar
1 Tb salt
1/3 cup oil
6 cups flour

Mix yeast, sugar and water. Allow to sit for a few minutes. Add remaining ingredients and let your mixer knead the dough until it is a soft dough. Let it rise in mixer. Punch down every 10 minutes by turning on the mixer for a few seconds. Do this 4-5 times.

Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each quarter into a large rectangle and roll up starting from the long side.

Place on greased baking sheets sprinkled with corn meal, seam side down. With a sharp knife cut slits into the loaves. Let rise until doubled in size (about 30 minutes).

Bake at 400 for *35 minutes. Brush crust with butter as soon as it comes out of oven. Try to contain yourself as you wait for it to cool slightly! 😉 Slice and Enjoy!!!

* Sometimes it only takes 20 minutes
