- 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.
