White bread - contributed by Rebecca A. C. Smith
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1 tsp suger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
To save time, I used a bread machine for the kneading and initial rising of the dough. Each batch was formed into 3 loaves (I didn't want really large loaves that would fill people up) wrapped in foil and placed in the freezer. They were then thawed out for the second rise and baked at the event. Bake at 400° F for 20 minutes.
