    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      n a large bowl (or in the bowl of an electric mixer) whisk together the water, yeast and sugar. Let stand for 10 minutes, or until the yeast looks creamy.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well blended (or on low for about 2 minutes with a dough hook).
    3. 3
      Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board, and knead, adding more flour if you need, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the dough is elastic and smooth (or mix on medium for about 8 minutes, until the dough has the same appearance).
    4. 4
      Shape the dough into a smooth ball and place in an oiled bowl that allows enough room for the dough to grow. Cover the bowl tightly with film wrap or a damp towel, and set aside to rise for about one hour, or until the dough doubles in size.
    5. 5
      Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board, gently flatten the dough, and cut into two equal portions. Shape each portion into a log (I just roll the dough up somewhat tightly) and seal the seam by pressing on it. Place each piece of dough into a greased 9x5" loaf pan, seam side down,.
    6. 6
      lightly spray the tops with pan spray, and cover again with film wrap or a damp towel. Allow the loaves to rise about an hour to an hour and a half, until they are about doubled. Preheat the oven to 350f while the dough is rising.
    7. 7
      Bake the loaves for 30 to 45 minutes, or until they are a deep golden brown, and sound hollow when the bottoms are thumped (you'll have to tip them out of their pans to test this). I did gently brush the tops of the loaves with egg whites for shine before I baked them.
    8. 8
      Allow the bread to cool about 30 minutes or longer.

      I tried this recipe, by hand, since I don't have a mixer or a bread machine. It works out perfectly! I just wish I had a rel oven, instead of a convectional oven. I think in a real oven it would come even better. Thanks for sharing!
