Probably the easiest bread recipe you will ever try!
  • vegetable oil, for greasing
  • 1 tsp. instant yeast
  • 3½ cups whey from making yogurt (you can use water as well) at room temperature
  • 5½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¾ cups whole-wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup flaxseeds (or whatever seeds you have- I like sunflower and flax mixed)
  • 4 tsp. kosher salt
  1. Oil the inside of two 9 x 5 in. metal loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix yeast, liquid, flours, seeds, and salt. Scrap dough into pans.
  3. Drape with a clean, damp dish towel and let rise for about 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove bread from pans, return to oven and bake directly on racks (to brown the outer crust). The bread is done when it is rich in color and sounds hollow when tapped. I usually allow 15 minutes.
  6. Let it cool before slicing (I never get to this point- it's the best when right out of the oven, alone or with some butter or jam).
You can store loaves in a paper bag for up to a week. For longer storage, wrap tightly and freeze.
