Simple loaf of bread

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 small tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 tbsp oil

Mix 1/2 tsp sugar into the water, sprinkle the yeast over top and let it sit for 5min (until there is some sign that the yeast is alive).

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the yeast mixture and oil and knead for 8-10min (e.g. in stand mixer).

Coat the dough with a little oil, cover and let rise for 2 hours (double in size).

Punch down, make loaf (e.g. in loaf pan, or free), let rise for 1 hour.

35min in 375F oven. Sounds hollow when you knock on it if it’s done.
