  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This is not my recipe. This recipe was passed to me by a friend. The bread comes out very good.

    Step 2

    Gather all your ingredients

    Step 3

    Put the warm water and sugar in a big bowl. A very BIG BOWL. A salad bowl works for me.

    Step 4

    Add your yeast.

    Step 5

    Mix the yeast with the warm water and sugar. You can add more sugar, is up to you. I use chopstick to mix.

    Step 6

    Let the yeast rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

    Step 7

    Add the salt to the yeast.

    Step 8

    Add 1/2 cup of wheat flour.

    Step 9

    Whisk a little until mix.

    Step 10

    Add one cup of wheat flour and one cup of white flour.

    Step 11

    I use my chopstick to mix.

    Step 12

    It should look like this. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

    Step 13

    Add the rest of the flour and work the dough.

    Step 14

    I work my dough inside the big bowl. Knead the dough some more until it become smooth, elastic and just feels nice.

    Step 15

    Talk to the yeast while you do this, you can sing to it too. Enjoy the texture but don't over knead, dough get tough and icky.

    Step 16

    Step 17

    Grease a bowl with oil. I use my Misto with olive oil.

    Step 18

    Place dough inside the greased bowl and roll it around until the dough is cover with oil.

    Step 19

    Cover and put it in a warm place and let it rise for 60 minutes.

    Step 20

    If your house is cold then you can place it inside of an oven that was heated to warm, turn off, and with a pan of warm water on the floor of it.

    Step 21

    After it rise punch it down flat and shape it into a loaf.

    Step 22

    Place it in the pan, cover and let it rise again for 60 minutes or more. At this time I just go to the gym.

    Step 23

    Preheat oven at 350 f.

    Step 24

    Before it goes inside the oven, mix the cold water with the salt and brush it on top of the dough.

    Step 25

    Bake for 40 minutes or a little more. Take it out and let it cool in a cookie rack.

    Step 26

    Enjoy your bread!!! Sometimes my bread grows more. But always taste great. Approved by my 9yo daughter.

    Step 27

    I hope you enjoy. <3
