Cooking Time

30 mins

Ingredients

- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 2-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 6-1/4 to 6-3/4 cups Grand Mills All Purpose flour

Directions

1 - In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups of Grand Mills All Purpose Flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to form a soft dough.

2 - Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.

3 - Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each into a loaf. Place in two greased 9x5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30-45 minutes.

4 - Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans onto wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
