TOTAL TIME: about 2 hours 30 minutes



  • 1/2 cup warm water

  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast

Let bubble for 10-15 minutes.

  • 1 egg, beaten


  • 2 cups wheat flour

  3. Add the sponge mixture to the bread mixture.

  5. Turn the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour until the dough starts pulling away from the sides of the bowl. It should mix for 11 minutes.

  7. Punch down the dough and place in a greased bread pan. Let rise again for 35-45 minutes. 

  8. Bake at 325°F for 30-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 190°F.

*Our favorite yeast is SAF yeast.
*You can use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or mix by hand. 
*DO NOT add too much flour- it makes for the dough to rise and makes it tough. 
*We use a heating pad, set on low, to raise our bread dough. It helps the dough to maintain a consistent temperature for rising.
