For an easy, tasty beginner bread I would recommend a basic white 
bread.  Peter Reinhart's from the Bread Baker's Apprentice is easy 
and delicious - came out perfect the first time.  I actually found 
the recipe as part of Google's book preview here:


[Editor's note: this link didn't work for me but YMMV. The recipe is 
on pages 266-267.]

As for the original 4-H recipe you listed, I suspect that a regular 4 
cups of flour would be too much for one cup of water, but a sifted 4 
cups /might/ work.  Of course, without having a weight equivalent 
it's really anyone's guess.

On a totally unrelated note, sifted flour reminded me of the Cuban 
Bread recipe from the Three Guys from Miami site: 
<http://icuban.com/food/pan_cubano2.html> which is awesome.  Then 
read about their Cuban sandwich 
<http://icuban.com/food/cuban_sandwich.html>, make the pork as they 
recommend, compile the rest of the sandwich and you will never be the 
same again!! :
