Bread Contest Finale and the WINNER!

Before we get to the grand winner and all. I would like to show the people that entered, their bread and their recipes that they offered.

First contestant is oldbluesocks.  This is her bread from the recipe that I shared. She did a great twist on it and made a loaf of it into cinnamon bread. Check out her description here.

The second contestant was greenspree. He lets us know about how to make a no knead bread with the video found here.

Our third, and final, entry comes from Sondra. She emailed her's to me and doesn't have a site that I can send you to. She made her's from the recipe for Amish Bread and sent in the recipe and pictures.

Amish White Bread

2 cups of warm water
2/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups of 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.

After plugging in the grand numbers of contestants into's generator, the winner is:
