Lynnette Scott’s White Bread

Breads & Desserts


1 Tbsp. yeast
3 Tbsp. sugar (or 6 Tbsp. for dinner rolls)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. oil
1 Tbsp. salt
4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour


  Mix yeast, sugar and 1 cup flour with 2 cups warm water.* Let mixture stand for 10 minutes, until foamy. (The foaming indicates the yeast is active and good to use.) Add oil and salt. Slowly mix in 4 to 5 cups of flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough is smooth and slightly tacky to the touch. (Humidity will affect the amount of flour needed.) Turn dough into an oiled bowl, cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Push down to release air and knead until smooth. Form dough into 2 loaves and place into loaf pans, or make 15 dinner rolls. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 F for 20 minutes. Makes 2 loaves or 15 dinner rolls.
  * Water temperature should be less than 110 F to avoid killing yeast. Put a few drops on the inside of your wrist; if it burns, it’s too hot for the yeast.
  Note: Make your bread extra special with an add-in such as shredded Cheddar cheese, dried herbs, dried fruit, nuts, etc. Stir it in after the oil and salt.
