- 6 cups unbleached flour, divided (you may subsitute 3 cups of white flour for whole wheat flour)
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 Tbsp dry active yeast
- 3 Tbsp fresh rosemary
- 2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp or more of rubbed sage
- 2 Tbsp vegan butter
Combine 4 cups of the flour, sugar, salt, yeast, and 2 1/2 cups of very warm water (120 – 130 degrees) in a large bowl.
Add herbs and stir until well blended.
Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes. (I put the bowl on my dryer while drying clothes)
Grease 2 9×5 inch loaf pans.
Stir dough for 25-35 strokes.
Divide between the prepared pans. Cover and let rise again for 30-45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Bake loaves for 30 minnutes. Reduce heat to 150 and bake for another 15 minutes. However, the last 10 minutes, cover with foil to prevent to much browning.
Remove from pans immediately abd brush with melted vegan butter.
Cool on a wire rack or whatever you might have.
Beautiful job….! Now, Enjoy!
