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.dsc005453

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.dsc005471

Cool on a wire rack or whatever you might have.

Beautiful job….! Now, Enjoy!

    Is it possible to halve this recipe? For the most part, I cook for one, and when I make too much of anything, I end up wasting food.
