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.

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