I got this from the blog "Good Cheap Eats". Its a really quick and easy bread recipe that you can alter.
4 cups of flour (I used 2 of reg. flour and 2 of whole wheat)
3 tbsp sugar (I use organic cane sugar) + 1 tsp for the yeast
1 1/2 cups of water warmed (to 100F if you have a thermometer)
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 pkg of yeast or 2 tsp from a jar (follow the directions to get the yeast active)
** you can add herbs, dried fruit and nuts to this recipe easily
activate the yeast following the directions on the label (this usually needs 10min to sit). Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. add olive oil and yeast (once its foaming). combine together until you have a nice dough ball. cover the bowl with a moist towel and let sit in a warm spot for 30 min to proof. once proofed, knead the bread for about 5 min then
place in greased bread pan. Or just leave in a large boule and cook as is. preheat oven to 350F and cook bread for about 30 min or until the crust is golden brown and the bottom is hardened.
