Amish White Bread

So I've been making bread lately so we don't have to buy it. I tried a new recipe I found online today. It tastes so yummy but who doesn't like hot bread out of the oven.

"This recipe will give you two loaves of plain, sweet white bread that are quick and easy to make."
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour

1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water, and then stir in yeast. Allow to proof until yeast resembles a creamy foam.
2. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

3. Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes, or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
