 Ingredients List

  • 3 3/4 c Unbleached white flour
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 3 tb Wheatgerm
  • 1 tb Dry yeast
  • 1 c Warm water


In a bowl, stir together 3 c flour with salt & wheatgerm. Combine the yeast
& the water & set aside till the yeast starts to work. Make a well in the
centre of the dry ingredients & pour in the yeast & water. Slowly work in
the flour from the sides of the bowl, then beat the mixture vigorously
until thoroughly stirred together. This is a sticky dough. Flour a board
with 3/4 c flour plus 2 tb & turn out the dough. Turn the bread so that is
coated on all sides. Knead thoroughly. Fold dough in half & roll out into a
narrow shape about 12 inches long. Set on an oiled pan & allow to rise till
it is nearly doubled in size. Preheat oven to 375F & bake for 45 minutes.
