DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO BAKE SUGAR BREAD

You can either use your hands or a stand dough mixer or a stand dough mixer.

In a large bowl, add all the measured ingredients starting with the flour.

Using the dough hook, mix on the lowest setting speed you have. Mix for 5 to 7 minutes or until all the ingredients are well combined.

The dough should be a bit sticky. Transfer it onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. This process will help develop the gluten that are found in bread.

Grease oil in a large bowl. Then place the dough in the oiled bowl. Cover with a plastic wrap and leave in a warm area to rise for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Punch it to let out some of the air pockets trapped in the dough.

Transfer the dough onto a clean surface and knead again with your hands for about 8 to 10 minutes.

If you are using a loaf pan, divide the dough into four equal parts. Shape them into a loaf shape then place them in a 9 x 5 in. pan. Cover them and leave them in a warm place to rise.
