    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Loaves

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Dissolve the yeast in the water, add salt and sugar.
    2. 2
      Add flour until it forms a soft dough(not sticky!)
    3. 3
      Knead the dough for 6-8 minutes, until it's smooth and elastic. ( I use the dough hook on my kitchenaid mixer for about 4 minutes, then knead by hand for 4 minutes.)
    4. 4
      Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Place dough inside, turning once to coat.
    5. 5
      Cover and let rise one hour, until doubled.
    6. 6
      Punch dough down, and cut in half.
    7. 7
      Form into 2 12'' loaves. (In the pics, I did one long loaf, and two small rounds)
    8. 8
      Cover with damp dishcloth. Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place, I set mine on the stove on top of my pre-heating oven.
    9. 9
      Cut dough with diagonal marks, about 4 down the length of the loaf.
    10. 10
      Bake at 450 degrees F. for about 15 mins -- If you want really crusty loaves, I pour about 1/4 cup of water into the oven just before I close the door--my improvised steaming method :-).
