Simple one-hour homemade bread
Makes 2 loaves Ingredients Directions
1. Combine dry ingredients. Add oil and water. Mix for 1 minute; the dough should be very sticky. If it is too dry, add more water. 2. Mix for 5 minutes. (Do not add any more flour after the dough has finished mixing). 3. Spray kneading surface with cooking spray and turn dough out onto surface. Knead dough briefly until it has a smooth even consistency (this will only take several turns of the dough to accomplish). 4. Divide dough into 2 pieces (or more if you wish to have smaller loaves) and shape loaves into desired shapes. Place on greased baking sheets and cover with a large dishtowel. Let rise for 25 minutes. 5. While loaves are rising, preheat oven to 350 F. Once the loaves are ready to go into the oven, use a sharp knife (you can lightly spray your knife with cooking spray to prevent dragging) to make several slashes in the top. Make each cut about N- inch deep at a 30 degree angle. 6. Bake loaves for 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
