Clover Kids Bread in a Bag

3 cups flour, divided into 3 - 1 cups
1 package rapid rise yeast
3 T. white sugar
3 T. olive oil
1 cup warm water
1.5 tsp. salt

In a resealable plastic bag combine 1 cup of flour, sugar and yeast and add in warm water.  (Make sure it's not too hot.)
Remove the air from the bag, seal it, then squish to mix ingredients together.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes at room temperature.  (Watch the burps!)
Open the bag and add 1 cup of flour, the oil and salt.  Remove the air from the bag, seal it and squish again.
Add the last cup of flour and continue mixing until well blended.
Remove the dough from the bag and put on a lightly floured surface.
Knead for about 8 minutes, until smooth.
Divide the dough and place each into lightly greased (mini) loaf pans. (or make one big loaf)
Cover the pans with a towel and allow to rise for about 45-60 minutes.  You want the bread to double in size.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Let the bread rest and enjoy!
