Amish Sweet Bread

The calendar says it's Spring, but there's still a chill in the air.  Since the windows can't be opened, why not make the inside of your home smell delicious and bake some bread.  Truth be told, I forgot to pick up bread at the grocery store and I'm glad that I did.  This bread is sensational.  A hint of sweetness that will make it great for toast and I'm thinking really good for turkey sandwiches.




Amish Sweet Bread

3 cups bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp canola oil
1 cup warm water
1 packet yeast

Combine warm water, canola oil and yeast and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Put flour, salt and sugar in your bread machine.  Pour in yeast and water mixture and set to dough setting.

When done, remove from machine and put on a greased bread pan.  Let rise for about a half hour in a warm area.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350°.  Remove from oven and brush on 1 tbsp of butter.  Return to oven for an additional 2 minutes.  Remove from oven and turn out onto a cooling rack.
