This is a wonderful recipe that is so easy and extremely satisfying. If you’re looking to make some bread I highly suggest you give this a try. 10/10 will make this again. I halved the recipe to make one loaf and it still worked beautifully
County Fair Bread
(2 loaves, halve recipe for 1 loaf)
2 packets of yeast (4 1/2tsp)
2c warm water
1 tbsp. salt
5c all purpose flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water with sugar. Wait 10 minutes till yeast is foamy. Add in the rest of the ingredients and knead until smooth. If dough is too wet and not coming together add more flour 1 Tbsp. at a time but not too much, this dough is meant to be soft but not super sticky. Place in a greased bowl and cover for 2 hours. Punch down and divide into 2 greased loaf pans. Brush tops with butter and let rise 1 hour. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes. I check my bread with a meat thermometer, the temp should be 190/200 degrees.
