White Bread

1/2 Cup Warm Water
4 1/2 Teaspoons Yeast (or two packets yeast)
(Set these in a cup, stir lightly and let dissolve)

2 Cups Hot Water
1 Tablespoon Salt
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1/3 Cup Oil
3 Cup Flour
Mix these ingredients together then add the dissolved yeast mixture
3 Additional Cups Flour (add these)
Mix and put a towel over (leave the wooden spoon in the bowl)
Set timer for 10 minutes 5 times just stir at the 10 minute intervals then cover and leave the wooden spoon in. (I don't know why but that is what the recipe says)
Divide the dough in half and place on jelly roll pan. ( My neighbor braids hers maybe next time I will try that)
Let rise for 20-60 minutes.
Beat one egg and brush on top
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes depending on if you like the outside soft or a little crusty. Either way the inside is fabulous.
