Buttery Homemade Bread
1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
4 tablespoons Butter Flavor Olive Oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
In a large bowl mix together the warm water (110 degrees), yeast, sugar, and olive oil. Stir in the salt and 2 cups of the flour in order to make a soft ball. Knead in additional flour so that dough is soft and not sticky, about 3 minutes.
Place kneaded dough in a medium size greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
Punch down dough, and form into a ball or 10-inch loaf shape. Place onto a greased cookie sheet and make 2-3 slashes in the top. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover and let rise for 15 to 20 minutes.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown. Once cooled, slice and serve with jam.
