Traditional Amish Bread recipe – 124 calories

4 3/4 – 5 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups milk
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (or margarine)
2 1/4 teaspoons fast-rising yeast
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. In a large bowl, combine the yeast with two cups of the flour.
2. In a small saucepan, heat the milk, butter, sugar and salt to 120-130 degrees F.
3. Slowly add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, beating well.
4. Add the eggs and beat well.
5. Slowly add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough is moderately stiff.
6. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, using a stand mixer with dough hook at medium speed for about 2 – 3 minutes (or 6 – 8 minutes by hand, on a lightly floured board).
7. Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, turning once to coat.
8. Cover the bowl with a warm cloth that is slightly damp; let rise for about 30 – 40 minutes (or until it doubles its size).
9. Punch down and divide in half; cover the portions with the cloth and let rest for about 10 minutes.
10. Shape the dough into 2 loaves and put into greased loaf pans.
11. Let rise again until double.
12. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees F, for about 25 – 30 minutes.
13. Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack; when completely cool, wrap and store in a cool, dry place.
