Homemade Bread

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water

In large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, yeast and warm water.  Stir until dough pulls cleanly away from side of bowl.

Knead 10 minutes, adding a little flour at a time, if dough feels sticky.  Put in bowl to rise and cover with a towel to keep any contaminants out. Let rise until double, then punch down.  Let rise on counter covered with inverted bowl for 15 minutes.

Shape into a loaf and place in your cooking container.  Let rise in warm place about 1 hour or until it has risen about 1 inch above pans. Bake for 45 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow.
