  • 6 cups warm water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk
  • 3 Tbs yeast
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 rounded Tbs salt
  • 5 lbs bread flour


  • Pour 6 cups warm water into Bosch. Add sugar and yeast. When the bubbling begins add remaining ingredients and mix for 5 minutes. Let rise to double. (About an hour) Punch down and form 6 loaves. (or 4 large). Place in sprayed pans. Let rise to 1/2 in above the pan and bake at 400 degrees for 25 mins. Remove from pans, rub top crust with butter, and allow to cool completely. Enjoy!

Wheat Bread variation:

  • Use 10 cups Whole Wheat Flour and 4 cups bread flour
  • Use Honey instead of sugar if desired.


If not using a Bosch, 1/2 the recipe and you may use a Kitchen Aid.
