    duonyte's Note:

    From the blog "hip2thrift". This bread was prepared by the author's grandmother in a wood-burning oven in a large quantity. The author reduced it to two loaves. She describes it as a cross between rustic Italian and sourdough bread.

    1. 1
      In a large bowl mix the warm water, sugar, the yeast, and a cup of flour. Mix it with a spoon until smooth. Let stand for about 15 minutes - you should start to see the yeast begin to work.
    2. 2
      Mix in the oil and the salt. Start adding the rest of the flour, mixing until it is incorporated and the dough comes together.
    3. 3
      Turn out onto a floured surface (I usually use an oiled surface for kneading) and knead until you have a smooth dough, about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Place in a greased bowl, cover and let stand in a warm place until the dough is doubled.
    5. 5
      Turn out of bowl onto floured surface. Deflate the dough by kneading gently and let rest 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Divide dough into six pieces and shape each piece into a rope. Braid three pieces into a loaf; repeat with remaining pieces.
    7. 7
      Place each braid into a greased loaf pan, cover and let rise until nearly doubled.
    8. 8
      Preheat oven to 400 deg F (200 deg C)
    9. 9
      Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
    10. 10
      Turn out of pans and brush with a little oil.

      Beautiful bread with a great fine texture that's soft inside and a bit chewy in the crust. I made a single loaf for the two of us. Thanks very much for sharing your wonderful breads with duonyte, this is another keeper.
