 Here is my absolute favorite bread recipe.  The most complicated thing about
 it is getting the water the right temp and all you need for that is a candy
 Basic Bread
 2 T yeast
 1 C Warm water
 1 tsp sugar 
 Mix together, let stand until foamy.  About 3-5 min.
 1/4 C sugar
 2 T salt (may be decreased to 1 tsp, but doesn't rise well if omitted)
 6-7 cups of bread flour.
 Add 3 cups of warm water, sugar and start adding flour.  When mixture
 is very thick add salt.  Continue adding flour until you can't add any
 Turn out and let rest while you clean bowl.  Kneed for 10 min. adding
 remaining flour.  Place in oiled or sprayed bowl and turn over to coat this
 keeps a crust from forming on the dough.  Cover and let rise in a warm place
 until doubled.  Punch down and divide into four 
 equal parts.  Place in oiled or sprayed pan and let rise until even with top
 of pan.  
 Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 min.
 This makes 4 loaves if you use the regular size loaf pan, larger or smaller
 pans well make fewer or more loaves.  The bread is also much more
 substancial than that store bought fog in a bag and tastes *wonderful*.
