Our Easy Recipe aboard m/v Dyad

1 packet dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
6 tablespoons lukewarm water
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup lukewarm water

Combine yeast, sugar, and the 6 tablespoons of water.
Set aside until puffy (10-20 minutes).

In a larger bowl mix the flour and salt.
Add puffy yeast, olive oil, and the cup of water. Mix well.

Set aside at least 45 minutes then knead 8-12 minutes.
Shape and place into a baking pan. Allow to rise at least 30 minutes.

Bake at 425 for 35 minutes.


Use sea salt in place of table salt and you'll get even tastier bread!  Once you get the knack for it, try the recipe with different types of flour.  Experiment with add-ins like nuts, grains, seeds, dry fruit, molasses, herbs, cheese, coconut etc. 

Use yogurt whey as the liquid in bread making. The bread will taste tangy like a sourdough. (Salty Paws)
