This makes a sweeter dough and would be great to use as rolls or cinnamon rolls if you choose not to make loaves.
2 C warm water
2/3 C white sugar
1 1/2 T active dry yeast
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 C vegetable oil
6 C flour
In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in the warm water, then add the yeast. Allow yeast to activate and foam.
Add salt and oil into the yeast mixture. Add flour, one cup at a time, to the mixture.
Knead dough until smooth.
Spray another large bowl with cooking spray.
Place the dough in the oiled bowl and cover with cloth or plastic wrap.
Allow to rise until dough doubles.
Punch down dough and knead for a few minutes; divide in half.
Shape into loaves and place in two greased 9x5 loaf pans.
Cover with cloth and allow to rise until double.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
