The first loaf of bread baked aboard Tanqueray, besides banana bread, was a success. Try it out yourself. It's delicious served warm directly out of the oven with a slice of butter.

2 cups 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 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 (About 20 minutes).
2. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1-2 hours.
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. Before baking, sprinkle a little olive oil and rosemary on top of the bread. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
