On one of the days you feed your starter and after you’ve let it sit out for 8-12 hours you’re ready to make up a batch of bread.
In a large bowl (I’m talking really large here!) add the following ingredients IN THIS ORDER:
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 cups of Bread Flour (I found that Pillsbury Bread Flour works best)
- 1/2 c corn oil
- 1 1/2 c warm water
- 1 c of your starter (this should leave you with a cup that you can put back in the fridge and continue to feed as scheduled)
After the 8-12 hours is up, you’ll notice your dough has risen to the top of your bowl or at least gotten waaay larger in size. If, for some reason, the dough hasn’t reason then you may have a yeast problem.
Punch this down and knead just a little. Then divide the dough into 3 loaf pans.
Let these sit and rise 4-5 hours.
When they are ready to pop in the oven, cook these bad boys at 325 for 35-45 minutes.
Tip: Right after I pull these loaves out of the oven I run butter over the tops of them. It gives them a super nice crust and a great shine. I could go for a slice of this right now.
