This is a very fun bread recipe to make and an easy one too! If you want to get your kids involved in the kitchen this will be a really good one to start with!
This dough also allows you to put it in a loaf bread or in a regular round one.
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
3 cups hot water
1/2 cup oil
5 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
2 pkgs. quick-rise yeast
Mix first 4 ingredients and 2 cups flour in a large mixer (using dough hook). Add 1 cup flour and then yeast, using mixer. Continue adding flour gradually until dough no longer has a shine. Place in large well-greased bowl, tuning once so all sides are greased. Let rise until doubled. Punch down and make into cloverleaf rolls (put 3 balls of dough in each cup of a muffin tin) or loaves of bread; let rise until doubled. Bake at 350ºF about 10 minutes for rolls or 15 to 20 minutes for bread.
