Amish Sweet Bread

I’ve made a ton of breads over the past few years and many never seen this website.  This is by far one of the best bread recipes I’ve ever made. The texture of it is spot on and the sweetness makes it so delicious.

2 cups warm water
2/3 cups sugar
1 1/2 tbsp yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
5 – 6 cups flour

Combine the warm water, sugar and yeast in the bottom of a stand mixer. Once the mixture is foamy add the oil and salt to the mixture. Using the dough hook attachment to mix add one cup of flour at a time stopping at 5 cups. If more flour is needed at in 1/4 cup scoops until the dough is no longer sticky. Mix for 5 minutes. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a towel and let rise for 1 hour. Punch down the dough and divide into two even balls. Shape and place into 9×5 loaf pans and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 3 minutes then remove from pan and let cool completely.
