We have tried this Amish Wheat Bread recipe a number of times and every one in the family loves it. It truly tasted like a loaf of fresh homemade bread from an Amish bakery or restaurant.
This bread won't last long around your house if your family is anything like ours. Fortunately, this recipe makes 3 big loaves of bread.
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. flour
1 Tbsp. salt
3 c. warm water
2 Tbsp. (2 pkg.) yeast
3/4 c. vegetable oil
2 c. whole wheat flour
6 c. white flour
Mix sugar, flour and salt. Add water. Stir well and add yeast. Let set until it rises a bit, then add vegetable oil. Mix well, then add flour. Mix well. Let rise until double. Form into 3 loaves and let rise. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

Just a little side note - have you ever wondered why some of the loaves of homemade Amish bread have fork marks on them? Well, we did. So we decided to ask when we were at a little place that sold baked goods and produce. The woman told us that they push fork marks into the dough before it rises to help prevent air bubbles from forming in the bread.
If you want to try this, push fork marks into the bottom of the loaves of dough and then place that side of the loaf down in the pan.
