Directions

  1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the water and stir in the sugar.
  2. Allow the mixture to sit until it begins to bubble, about 10 minutes.

  4. Gradually stir in the proofed yeast mixture and oil, stirring until the dough begins to form a ball If mixing by hand, turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead it until it is elastic, about 5 minutes Oil a medium mixing bowl, transfer the dough to the bowl, and turn it a few times to coat it with oil.
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm dry spot until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour Punch down the dough.
  6. Coat a 9 X 5 X 3 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  7. Form the dough into a loaf and place it in the prepared pan.
