This is my new go-to quick bread recipe. Requiring only one rising, it comes together super fast but still tastes DELICIOUS! From Abby Merkley at recipe swap.
1.5 Tbsp yeast
3 tsp salt
1.5 Tbsp sugar
3 cups warm water
6-7 cups flour (you can do about half white whole wheat)
Mix yeast, salt, sugar and warm water and let stand for 10 minutes.
Add flour and mix well (*I add flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixer, then I let it mix 4-5 minutes).
Let rise until double (40-60 min)
Place dough on oil/floured counter and shape into two loaves (LARGE).
Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes--brush top with butter as it comes out of the oven.
**Makes approx. 2 large loaves bread, w large peasant rounds, 4 bagettes, 3 pizza crusts or 2 large sheets of bread sticks)
