DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water. Mix the dry ingredients in a big bowl. Add oil and the yeast mix. Knead the dough well. You will probably have to add (quite a bit) more wheat to get the right consistency. Cover it and leave it to rise to twice its original size in a warm place. Knead the dough, and shape into 4 round loaves. Leave them to rise for about 30 minutes.
  • Put them in the oven at 425* for 35-50 minutes.
  • I usually add 1 teaspoons sugar to the dry ingredients. I also add sesame seed, rolled oats, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and/or wheat germ.
