Homemade Bread

My Homemade Bread

1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons yeast

Stir yeast into water/sugar mixture and let soften.

2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup oil
1/8 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
5 cups flour ( more or less as needed to make a good bread dough )

In large bowl stir together the water, salt, oil, sugar and beaten egg. Add the yeast mixture and stir well. Now add 2 cups flour. Mix with electric mixer till creamy looking. Stir in remaining flour and knead to finish. Knead about 8 minutes. ( I knead my bread dough by hand )
Cover bowl and set in a warm place on counter to rise about 45 minutes. Punch down and let rise another 20 minutes. Mould into loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Let rise again for about 50 minutes. Bake at 375F for approximately 45 minutes until done and golden brown. Cool and enjoy!
