Outrageously Easy BIG Bread (vegan)



I got this recipe from vegweb and LOVE it! Be sure to let the dough rise plenty. It is super easy, vegan, and makes 2 huge loaves!

Outrageously Easy BIG Bread (vegan)

2 packs of yeast
1/4 cup warm water
2 cups hot water
3 tablespoons turbinado
1 tablespoon salt
3 cups flour
1/3 cup vegetable or corn oil
3 cups flour


Note: This recipe works best if all ingredients are set out, ready to go, in advance. Also, make sure the turbinado, salt, flour, and oil are measured in the exact amounts called for.

Pour warm water into a small ceramic bowl and add the yeast, but DO NOT STIR. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, pour hot water over the turbinado and salt, then stir with a spoon to completely dissolve. Combine 3 cups flour with the water mixture. Pour the oil on top of the dough mixture then add the yeast mixture on top of that, but DO NOT STIR. Top with the remaining 3 cups of flour and mix well. At this point, the dough should be pliant and moist, but not gooey. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and set aside to rise for at least 45 minutes, but up to 2 hours.

On a lightly floured cutting board or countertop, divide the dough into half. Flatten each half into roughly an oval/rounded rectangular shape, about 1/2- to 3/4-inch thickness; then roll the dough lengthwise and place on an ungreased, but very BIG, cookie sheet. Cover the dough with a moist towel and set aside to rise again for another 45 minutes or longer.

After the dough has risen the second time, preheat the oven to 375 and bake for exactly 23 minutes. If you can keep everyone from digging in right away, allow to cool for about 15 minutes and then enjoy.


:wavehi:thank you, I been looking for a whole wheat / organic sugar easy recipe will have to try. Do you have any suggestions for brands of whole wheat/ organic sugars? tia


Altered the recipe a bit, and am trying it out today....I will let everybody know what my results are, and if they work, then I will post the recipe.


That is a nice recipe. Now I only need the organic ingredients to make this bread.
