Sure! Here’s a recipe for Grandma’s Country White Bread:


  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (about 110°F/43°C)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water and yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until the yeast is activated and starts to foam.
  2. Add the sugar, salt, and softened butter to the yeast mixture. Stir until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Gradually add the flour, one cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. Continue adding flour until the dough becomes too stiff to stir.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 8-10 minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic. You may need to add a little more flour if the dough is too sticky.
  5. Grease a large mixing bowl with the vegetable oil. Place the kneaded dough into the bowl and turn it around to coat it with oil. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours, or until it doubles in size.
  6. After the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air. Turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it again for a few minutes to remove any remaining air bubbles.

  1. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a loaf. You can either use loaf pans or shape them into round or oval loaves and place them on a greased baking sheet.
  2. Cover the loaves with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30-45 minutes, or until they have risen to the desired size.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake the loaves for about 25-30 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  4. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack before slicing.

Enjoy Grandma’s Country White Bread with butter, jam, or any toppings of your choice!
