White Bread

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pack of dry yeast (.25 o.z. or 2 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons of olive oil (vegetable or sunflower can be used too)

In large bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in water.

Let sit for about 10-15 minutes till foams.

Stir in salt and oil. Add in flour.

Knead till smooth for about 5-7 minutes. Add flour if too sticky or add water if too dry (small amounts at the time).

Place back in a bowl (lightly floured). Cover with damp paper towel or plastic.

Let rise for about an hour or so till dough doubles in size.

Form in to a loaf. Place in lightly oiled 9 by 5 pan. Let rise for about 45 minutes covered with damp paper towel.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
