Quick & Delicious Bread

I love ward cookbooks. I'm just as guilty as the next sister, but who doesn't want to share only their BEST recipes? This is one from the ward I grew up in, and originally came from my YW's leader. I mixed up a batch this morning while the kids were eating breakfast, and by lunch we had homemade bread to devour!

3/4 C. granulated sugar
4 t. yeast
3 C. warm water
1/3 C. oil
1 egg
3 t. salt
8 C. flour

Combine sugar, warm water, and yeast in large mixing bowl; let stand 10 mins. Combine oil and egg and add to yeast mixture. Stir in salt and 3 C. flour; mix well. Stir in additional 3 C. flour; mix well. Add enough of remaining flour to make a soft, sticky dough. Cover bowl and allow to rise until double in bulk; punch down, turn dough over in bowl, and allow to rise covered, until double in bulk again - about 45 minutes. Your dough will still be pretty sticky; use flour on the counter and your fingers to shape dough into 3 loaves and put in greased loaf pans; cover and allow to rise until doubled, about 30 mins. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, or until loaves are lightly browned. Brush crusts with melted butter to soften.


  1. Kristi Egbert. She wasn't actually a leader, but an advisor, I think. I just remember her bringing it to an activity we had once.

  2. I don't remember the bread, but I do remember Sister Egbert. :D
