DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all of the ingredients, and mix them till you have a shaggy dough.
  • Let the dough rest, covered, for 20 minutes, then knead till fairly smooth.
  • Allow the dough to rise, covered, for 1 to 2 hours, or until it's puffy and nearly doubled in bulk.
  • Gently deflate the dough, shape it into a log, and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch bread pan.
  • Cover the pan with a proof cover or lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow it to rise for about 1 hour, till it's crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan.
  • Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for 45 minutes, tenting it lightly with aluminum foil for the final 20 minutes of baking.
