Bread Heaven

I finally figured out it was the stupid rectangle box pan holding back my true art... I let this bread rise and then made two long ropes and swirled them... to get the golden outside crunchy crust with a warm soft center just use a spray bottle and spray water in the hot oven while the bread is baking...

2 pkgs yeast
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp salt
2 eggs beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour

In a large bowl dissolve yeast in warm water, add sugar, salt, beaten eggs, and oil. Mix in three cups flour. Continue adding flour til soft dough forms.

Knead dough out on wheat flour surface. Place on well greased baking pan, cover with a cloth, and let dough rest 2 hours or until doubled. Knead dough out on wheat flour again and half dough. (this is when i freeze one half)

Make two long ropes with dough then twist up into a loaf back on pan. Cover with cloth and let rise 2 hours longer.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes. YUM!
