DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together in a large bread-making bowl the water, yeast and sugar.
  • Allow this mixture to bubble and foam, then add the oil and vinegar.
  • Add the bread flour cup by cup, stirring well after each addition.
  • Then add the salt and the whole wheat flour, cup by cup, stirring well after each addition. The dough will be a bit wet and spongy.
  • Cover with a damp tea towel and let rise in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Using a big spoon, spoon the dough into 2 well-greased loaf pans. If necessary, press the sides down, helping to create the perfect loaf shape.
  • With a knife, make 2 or 3 diagonal shallow incisions in the loaves.
  • Sprinkle with either the steak spice or raw sugar, depending upon whether you want sweet or savoury.
  • Bake the loaves about 50 minutes at 375 degrees F or until they are golden brown and crusty on top and sound hollow when tapped on the underside.
  • Let cool at least 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
