Ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 cups very warm water
  • 2 tablespoon vegan sugar (or molasses)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon dry baking yeast
  • about 7 1/2 cups flour

Directions:

Put water in large bowl. Add vegan sugar and yeast. Then add vegetable oil and salt. Let set for a few minutes to allow yeast to dissolve and become active (5 min.). Next, stir in enough flour to make dough thick (like mud). Then gradually add flour one cup or less at a time until dough is fairly stiff. Knead on a floured counter. I use white flour for kneading. Oil vegan bread bowl, place ball of dough in it upside down, then turn right side up. Cover bowl with towel. Let rise until double in size. Punch down.

Turn out on counter and cut into three sections. Shape into loaves and place in greased bread pans. Let rise about 30 minutes. Bake about 30 minutes at 350 F.
