Directions:
Combine all liquid ingrediants in bread mixer. Sift flour, sugar, and salt into liquid until you have a soft batter. Mix, adding addional flour until mixture pulls away from bowl, and is not longer sticky to the touch. Move dough to a large, greased, bowl, cover with damp cloth, and let rise, until double in size. Punch dough down, cover, and let double again. Turn dough out on floured surface, divide into 5, form loaves, making sure you get all the air bubbles out. Place in greased loaf pans, cover, let rise. Bake in pre-heated 350 oven for 30 min.
I occasionally like to put in 1 c of cooked oatmeal, or any left-over mashed potatoes. Wheat flour can also be mixed in.

Bread is a funny thing. Your yeast, the temperature of the day, humidity, and your own oven can change things. Just practice..you'll make it.
