Baking Day

White Bread
(I am usually all about the whole wheat with added flax and grain and fiber, but today the family won me over and I made plain old white bread...It was delicious)

1 package yeast
1 1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
5 cups bread flour

1. Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water. Add the sugar and allow to activate.....10 minutes or so until bubbly.
2. Add about 1 cup of the flour and then incorporate the eggs and salt. Continue adding flour until you have a nice dough. Knead and set in a buttered bowl in a warm place to rise.
3. After about an hour of rising you should have a great big overflowing blob of bread dough. Punch down dough and divide into 2. Shape loaves and set in pans. Allow to rise once more until doubled.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
All ready for butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar!
