Homemade Bread
White Bread

2 packages
dry yeast

2 cups

warm milk (whole or skim, 105 to 115)

2 cups

all purpose flour

3 cups
bread flour
4 tbl
sugar
2 tsp
salt
cup
canola or olive oil

We have a KitchenAid professional mixer.  We use it a lot and love it.  This recipe is a favorite of ours.

Put the flours, yeast, sugar, and salt into the mixing bowl and mix with a fork.  Add the milk and oil.  Using a spiral dough hook set the mixer to speed 2 and mix everything together to form the dough. Let the mixer knead the dough for 5 more minutes.  Spray a bowl with cooking spray, drop the dough into the bowl, spray the outside of the dough with cooking spray, cover with plastic wrap, and put it in a warm place until it is doubled.  Punch the dough down and divide into two equal pieces.  Roll each piece of the dough out on a floured surface into a long approximately 10" X 18" to 20" rectangle.  Roll the the pieces of dough into two logs and place them into 2 greased bread pans.  Cover the bread pans with plastic wrap or damp towels and let the dough rise again to about double its size.  Heat the oven to 350 then bake the bread for approximately 30 minutes.  Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a rack.  Wipe the top of the loaf with a damp paper towel to keep the bread crust soft.
