I'm excited about this easy Amish Bread recipe . It's made in the bread machine, its unbelievably easy to make and its so good you'll be marking it a favorite once you try it. It's not the traditional recipe for Amish Friendship bread that's made with sourdough.
Trivia:According to Wikipedia, canola oil was Once considered a specialty crop in Canada but it is now a major North American cash crop. Canada and the United States produce between 7 and 10 million tonnes of canola seed per year.
Easy Amish Bread Recipe
2 3/4 cups bread flour
1/4 cup canola oil (or substitute any good oil such as corn oil)
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of warm water
Would you believe there are only two easy steps? First, you put all the ingredients in your bread machine. Put them in using the order that the maker recommends. Choose the cycle for white bread and start the machine.
Allow the machine to proceed to the start of the second kneading cycle. It should have raised once. At this point, when kneading begins, shut the machine off and start the cycle over again by pressing start. This should give the Amish bread recipe three rising cycles in total. If your machine already has three cycles, obviously you do not need to reset it.
And that's it. This easy Amish bread recipe is so easy its kid-friendly to make, and its so good you'll be making it over and over.
