Ingredients
  • 3 cups flour, plus a little extra in case you need it
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/4 cups water
Directions
  • Dissolve sugar in warm water; sprinkle dry yeast over water and leave until the yeast gets frothy - 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, put flour and salt in food processer and pulse briefly to mix.  Pour in the frothy yeast water and process 30- 40 seconds. The dough should form a rough ball.
  • Put the dough into a fairly large bowl (to allow for its volume when raised) and let rise, covered, in a warm draft-free place, until it has almost doubled in volume, about an hour. (Tip: to create a warm, draft-free place, microwave a glass of water for 2 minutes then put the dough in the microwave to rise along side the heated water.)
  • Sprinkle a little flour on a work surface. Scrape out the dough onto the floured surface and divide in half.  Press and knead each piece for a minute to get out any air bubbles, then roll into cigar-shaped loaves to fit the baking pan(s). Put loaves into lightly oiled pan(s). Make several diagonal slashes in the top and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise until almost doubled, about an hour.
  • When the dough seems almost risen, preheat oven to 425. Bake for 25 -35 minutes. The bread is done when the bottom of the of the loaf  sounds hollow when tapped.  Remove from pan to cool.
