YIELD: 1 9" x 5" loaf


  • 500 Grams Ground Up Flour (All Purpose or Bread)
  • 320 Grams Water at around 110°F
  • 32 Grams Honey (Or Sugar)
  • 30 Grams Sunflower Oil
  • 10 Grams Salt
  • 6 Grams Instant Dry Yeast


  1. Grease loaf pan liberally with oil.
  2. Combine flours, salt in mixer. Add water, honey, yeast. Mix to combine. Add oil. Mix for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove dough from mixer and, on a clean work surface, knead by hand for an additional 3-5 minutes. Transfer loaf to a bowl, cover with plastic and allow to rest for about an hour in a warm/room temperature, draft-free place. 
  4. Check the dough after an hour. It should be very puffy. If it hasn't grown much, let it proof for an additional 30 minutes. 
  5. At the end of the initial proofing, gently deflate the dough, then transfer it to a lightly floured work surface. Flour your hands, and pat the dough into a rectangle, then roll the dough up like a jellyroll. 
  6. Transfer to your prepared loaf pan, and cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to proof for an additional 60-90 minutes, until the loaf has domed over the rim of the loaf pan. 
  7. Preheat your oven to 400°.
  8. When your loaf is read to bake, brush the top with more sunflower oil. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350°and bake for an additional 35 minutes or until golden brown.
