From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  I adapted
this recipe from
One More Moore.  There are three
things that set this apart from other Amish Bread
recipes.  It uses 1) butter rather than oil 2) less sugar
3) more yeast.  Using a bread machine, it's a breeze
to make.
In a bread machine:
1 1/2 c hot water
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp butter
2 tsp salt
5 c flour
2 Tbsp yeast
Put of dough setting.

On a greased cookie sheet, floured stone, or silicone
baking mat.
Shape dough into 2 loaves.
Cut decorative slits on top.
Let dough rise until doubled.
Brush loaves with an egg white wash
(1 egg white + 1 Tbsp water)

Bake @ 400  for 17-25 minutes.
"The trouble with jogging is that by the time you realize
you aren't in shape for it, it's too far to walk back."
A silicone baking
mat is used to keep
food from sticking,
like parchment, only
it's washable/
reusable.
Amish Bread
One batch yields 2 of these loaves.
