90 Minute Yeast Bread

This bread is vegan!

What you’re gonna need:

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active yeast (or, 1 packet)
  • Generous 4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (not hot)
  • herb seasoning for flavoring (optional but recommended)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (white or brown; it doesn’t matter.  It won’t make much difference which one you use.  I like the subtle brown sugar flavor in mine, but it seems that white sugar helps your yeast foam faster.)
  • 1 tablespoon of oil.  I like coconut oil or olive oil! (Any will work. Well, except motor oil.  That would probably kill you.)

Here’s the plan:

  1. Dissolve your yeast in the 1.5 cups warm water. Add the sugar.  Cover, and let rest until your yeast starts to foam; about 5 or 10 minutes.
  2. Add herb seasoning and flour.
  3.  Knead 3 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. Let rise 30 minutes until doubled.
  5. Knead dough on a floured surface for 5 to 10 more minutes.
  6. If desired, braid bread!
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  8. Let rise near warm oven while preheating.
  9. Once your oven is ready, put the loaf in, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
