That got your attention, didn’t it??

Now that the Boyz are on their own, I only bake bread once a week. Today I am using my favorite Amish Bread recipe for buns. Hubby likes them for sandwiches.
** Did you know you can make TWO loaves of bread for about $1.75 at home???**
I actually got this recipe from a Mennonite woman, living near Joes, Colorado. Super easy and versatile. We use it for everything except sourdough, raisin bread and cinn rolls. (~ For those I use an Italian Sweet Dough.)
This makes wonderful French loaves, baguettes, sliced bread, dinner rolls, hamburger and hotdog buns….
2 Cup warm water
2/3 Cup sugar (you can also use Brown sugar or Honey- I’ve done both)
2Tablespoons yeast (or two packages)
1/4 Cup oil
2 Tsp Baking POWDER
1 tsp Salt
+/- 5 Cups flower (closer to plus)
|My niece’s first loaves!|
Add oil. Slowly add in dry ingredients while stirring. Turn out onto floured (this is the rest of the flour) surface and knead until smooth and dough bounces backed when poked. (like the Pillsbury Dough Boy). Lightly oil and cover. Let rise in a warm place until double.
** If you are making bread, before oiling and covering, divide into TWO)**
Punch down. Shape into loaves or rolls. Let rise again. Bake 350 oven 35 min. for bread and about 20 for buns. Remove. cool on wire racks. Butter tops while warm.
