Hi ATS friends! I hope you are enjoying your last day of 2018

It's been a fairly warm winter here, so the few inches and flurries of snow that we got today is really putting me in the mood to start fires, warm cocoa, and hybernate for a bit.
And I am definitely gonna go on a baking spree for the new year, and can't wait for that freshly-baked bread smell to make the house even cosier and the snow (outside) all the more appealing.

If you like to bake bread, you might want to try this recipe. It's a great consistency and tastes almost exactly like King's Hawaiian Rolls.


Here's the link to the site where I got the recipe (step-by-step with pictures too)
scratchthiswithsandy.com...
And here's the recipe. I substitute Nutiva shortening (made from organic red palm and coconut oils) for the vegetable oil and am always really pleased with the result.

2 Cups warm water about 110-120 degrees
⅔ Cups white sugar
1½ Tablespoons yeast
1½ Teaspoons salt
¼ cup vegetable oil
6 cups flour

Pull out onto lightly floured surface and knead shortly
Place in greased bowl flipping to cover both sides.
Top with saran wrap or damp warm towel
Set aside in draft free area and let rise till doubles in size. About 1 hour
Remove cover and punch down.
Lay out on lightly floured surface and cut in half.
Flaten out into rectangle and "jelly" roll into a loaf.
Pinch ends together and place in greased 9x5 bread pans.
Repeat with other half.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Once double in size bake for 25-30 minutes.
Pull out and brush top with butter.
Let rest 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
*Bakers notes: I've decreased the sugar down to ¼ cup or ⅓ cup instead of using full amount.
I've also cut the oil down to 2 Tablespoons and substituted the oil for butter.


Anyone else have any delicious bread recipes to suggest or share?
I hope you try this one out-- it's a keeper. Happy Baking!

I have been messing around with bannock recipes lately but am going to try my hand at bread soon.
That looks like a better recipe than the one I was just looking at....it called for lard.

I haven't used yeast before so its going to be a learning curve.

Thanks for the recipe.

Hey DrumsRfun!

It's a great recipe to start with.

And yeast really is not too tough. The most important thing (I am a newbie though) I've seen is that too much heat will kill it, so when the recipe calls for warm water don't overdue it.

I hope you enjoy

Thanks for sharing zosimov!
I've always wondered how to make good bread.
I wonder if it has to have the sugar? I tend to avoid sugar if I can.

If I like something and can get the recipe I save recipe's. Seems unusual for a male but I've been doing it a long time.

Hi Trucker


I read a bunch of reviews for this bread and a lot of people cut the sugar back considerably (1/4 cup instead of 2/3) and still loved the results.

I hope you enjoy!

Hey Drums! What is bannock recipes?


I love making bread of all kinds. I think some of my recipes are posted in the cooking forum. I do like to make Rosemary twist bread. Mmmmmmmm.
