Amish White Bread

I got this recipe from my Aunt Sherry from

2 cups warm water
2/3 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)
6 cups of bread flour
In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water; add yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Work in 5-6 cups of flour. Knead dough on a lightly floured level surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat the entire surface. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in 1/2 . Shape into loaves, and place into two well-oiled loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 min., or until dough has risen to one inch above pans. Bake 350 degrees for 30 min.
