Quick Bread

It is a great bread and very quick. Start at 6.30 and the bread will done before 8.00 am.

Here is the recipe

5-6 cups of bread or AP flour
2 packages dry yeast or 10.4 grams of instant (I used the instant)
1 tbs. salt
2 tbs. sugar
2 cups hot water ( Mine was about 110 F.)

Put 4 cups of the flour in a mixing bowl and add yeast, salt and sugar. Stir till they are well blended. Pour in the water and beat with flat beater for about 3 minutes.
Gradually work in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time till the dough takes shape and is no longer sticky.
With the dough hook knead for about 8 minutes till dough is smooth and elastic
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and put in a warm place (80 - 100 F) until double in bulk, about 15 min.
Punch dough down, turn it out on a work surface and cut into 2 pieces. Shape each into a round.Put on a baking sheet .Slash the dough with a razor or sharp knife.
Put baking sheet on the middle shelf of a COLD oven. Place a large pan with hot water on the shelf below and heat the oven to 400F. The bread will continue to rise while the oven is heating. Bake for about 50 minutes or until the loaves are a deep golden brown. Thump on the bottom crust to test for doneness. (I used my thermapen , it was about 202F.) If they sound hollow they are done.

I was really happy with this "quick" bread.
