These instructions use a food processor for convenience sake. You can make this by hand using a bowl and wooden spoon, or use your electric mixture. The results will be the same.



  • 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast (quick rise)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted


  1. In food processor combine warm water, sugar and yeast. Process for 10 seconds.

  2. Allow to sit until yeast bubbles and appears foamy.

  3. Add warm milk to the yeast mixture and process for 5 seconds.

  4. Add salt and oil and process 10 seconds more.

  5. Add one cup of the flour and process for 10 seconds.

  6. Add remaining two cups of flour and process until dough balls up and comes together.

  7. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth, 5 or 6 minutes.

  8. Place dough in well oiled bowl; turn to coat top.

  9. Let rise about 30-40 minutes, or until doubled in size.

  10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  11. Punch dough down, knead a few times. Divide dough into four equal parts.

  12. Shape into loaves and place into 4 greased mini loaf pans.

  13. Place loaves onto a cookie sheet and cover with a soft cloth.

  14. Allow to rise 20-30 minutes or until dough has risen about 1-inch above pans.

  15. Melt one tablespoon of butter and brush on the tops of the loaves. Bake for 28-30 minutes.

  16. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pans to cool the rest of the way.

I was excited to try a recipe for this bread until I saw I needed a food processor to make it. Ridiculous to say it is an Amish recipe and require a food processor.

Hi surflady62 5297606 - The ingredients in this recipe are all natural, which makes this homemade bread Amish-inspired. You are correct in saying that the Amish do not use electric appliances; this recipe simply takes a cue from Amish cooking. -Editors of RecipeLion


No one said they did! We are all using the internet to look up this recipe so obviously we are not Amish! Therefore, as we are using the internet to get the recipe, we probably use electricity for others things like food processors. You made this comment to make others look silly but the only one that looks silly is you. Seriously.

This is very helpful and thank you .

I have to thank the Amish for all the recipes they share. I am in california but I grew up in ohio. I am going to try these recipes. But I thought I would thank them in advance
