Original recipe yields 1 loaf

Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix together the warm water (110 degrees), yeast, sugar, salt, and olive oil. Stir in 2 cups of the flour in order to make a soft ball. Knead in additional flour so that dough is soft and not sticky. Place kneaded dough in a medium size greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
  2. Punch down dough, and form into ball or loaf shape. Place onto a greased cookie sheet. Cover and let rise for 15 to 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.

Wonderful. Tastes like true European bread that one could get in a bakery or very nice restaurant. For those who had problems with dryness, I used 2 cups of flour to start with, as stated in the recipe, and then added until the dough felt right. Definitely not the entire half cup, perhaps a quarter cup or slightly less. I let it rise about an hour and a half. Also, I had a pan of water at the bottom of the often to provide moisture for the first twenty minutes or so of baking. I don't have anything to mist with, so I relied entirely on that method. Ended up with a great crust and soft tasty inside. All in all, it's pretty addictive, and I feel I could almost eat a whole loaf in one night.

Excellent bread! Moist, chewy, and flavorful. For all of the dry bread reviews, here is the trick ... add more water slowly, a little at a time, until the bread forms a ball. The ball should be sticky but not too sticky. This will prevent your bread from becoming dry or having too much flour in the recipe. bread recipes are tricky and the liquid amount varies depeding on where you live and what time of year it is. We live in Arizona and I used 1 cup of water.

This was the easiest yeast bread I've ever made. It makes a fairly small loaf so if your having company I would recommend making two loaves. I took this to a church dinner and there was none left at the end of the evening.
