White Bread

1 c warm water
1 T yeast
1 T sugar

Dissolve until foamy (about 10 minutes)

Then add:
1 c warm water
3 T sugar
2 tsp salt
2 T oil
3 1/2 - 4 Cups flour

Knead with hands until elastic consistency let rise 1hr .
Punch down with hands,let rise until doubled about 30 minutes

You can use a bread pan that is greased with Crisco and cover with flour, or just shape and put on a prepared cookie sheet. Preheat oven and bake at 350 for around 30 minutes. The top should be a nice golden brown. Depending on the pain if the bottom is a little more done than the top turn oven down to 300 for the first 20 minutes and 350 for the last 10.

Tips for better bread:
No ac have house warm while it raises. The less you handle it the better the end texture will be. After you bake it, take out of pan and cool. Let sit for 30-40 minutes... letting bread sit and cool will help it be more moist, and finish baking. If you want a shinny finish spread a little butter on top while bread is hot.
