No Fail Yeast Bread

Cooks do not make homemade bread as they did a few years ago. Today, that treat may seem impossible for the novice cook - but not with this recipe. It is easy, quick to fix, and takes much less time than traditional homemade bread. This recipe is easiest if a large mixer is used. If a mixer is unavailable, dough may be kneaded by hand.


  • 5 cups warm water
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup honey or 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoon yeast
  • 3 tablespoon dough enhancer, (optional)
  • 11 1/4 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Combine water, oil, salt, sugar (or honey) and dough enhancer.
  2. Add yeast, mix.
  3. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 8 - 10 minutes. Flour hands and remove from mixer.
  4. Divide into 4 parts. Shape each part into a loaf and place into greased loaf pans. Cover and allow to rise until dough is 1 inch above pan.
  5. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.

Yield: 4 loaves

A nice variation is to make sweet rolls. Take 1 or 2 of the pieces of bread dough divided to make a loaf. Roll each portion of dough out into a 14 x 8-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Brush with 1-2 tablespoons softened butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up dough. Cut into 1-inch slices and place on greased baking pan. Allow to rise until double in bulk. Bake as above.
