Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Hand mix until dough holds together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, approximately 8 minutes.
Place dough in a large lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap that has been lightly greased, and allow to rise for 60-75 minutes or until doubled.
Gently deflate, and turn out on to a lightly greased work surface. Divide in half. Shape each half into a loaf and place into 9×5 inch loaf pans.
Alternatively, shape half into a loaf and the other half into 12 to 16 rolls, which can be placed into two 8″ greased round pans or into a 9″x13 pan. Or, make all dough into 24 to 32 rolls.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover the pans and allow to rise another 45 minutes, or until doubled. Bake loaves 30-35 minutes or rolls 20 minutes.
