“This is my winner with Tammiev and our friends. This recipe is for a 2 pound loaf and has never failed me. I think it is the lack of oil and sugar that they like in this one.”
READY IN:
3hrs 15mins
SERVES:
12
YIELD:
1 2lb loaf
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups water, at about 105 degrees
  • 4 cups flour (a flour with at 4 grams protein per serving is best)
  • 1 12 teaspoons salt (I use kosher)
  • 2 12 teaspoons dry yeast

Directions

  1. Add to the bread pan in the order yours needs.
  2. For mine it is water first.
  3. Then I add half the flour and the salt followed by the rest of the flour and the yeast on top.
  4. This will run well on the normal, rapid, and delay start cycles.
