1 1/4 C warm water
3/4 T yeast
3/4 T oil
3/4 T sugar
1 t salt
3 C flour
Mix and knead about 3 or 4 minutes in the mixer. Then (leave in mixer) and cover to rise for 10 minutes. Then knead a few times in the mixer and let rise another 10 minutes. Keep doing this for a total of about an hour.
Then form into a loaf on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Let rise there, covered, around 30 minutes. Then bake at 425 for 10 minutes, and then at 375 for 20 minutes.
In the loaf pictured I slashed the top and brushed with an egg wash before baking. It makes it look more store bought, but I don't usually do it because the flavor is great without these steps.
