White Bread Dough

Judy Laquidana shares her homemade white bread recipe.


We always have homemade bread at our house. Mostly, I make whole-wheat bread and use a bit of a variation of the recipe that came with my Bosch mixer. Sometimes, only my homemade white bread recipe will do, especially when making grilled cheese sandwiches with fresh tomato soup!

In large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Stir in yeast and let sit for 5 minutes.

Mix salt and oil into yeast. Add flour, 1 cup at a time. Knead dough on lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in well-oiled bowl and turn dough to coat. Cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap. Allow to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
