Ingredients

  • 1

    cup "fed" sourdough starter

  • 1 1/2

    cups lukewarm water

  • 2

    tsp instant yeast

  • 1

    tbsp sugar

  • 2 1/2

    tsp salt

  • 1/4

    cup Vegetable Oil

  • 5

    cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

Directions

1. Combine all of the ingredients, kneading to form a smooth dough. 2. Allow the dough to rise, in a covered bowl, until it's doubled in size, about 90 minutes. 3. Gently divide the dough in half; it'll deflate somewhat. 4. Gently shape the dough into two oval loaves; or, for longer loaves, two 10" to 11" logs. Place the loaves on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover and let rise until very puffy, about 1 hour. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 425°F. 5. Spray the loaves with lukewarm water. 6. Make two fairly deep diagonal slashes in each; a serrated bread knife, wielded firmly, works well here. 7. Bake the bread for 20 to 25 minutes, until it's a very deep golden brown. Remove it from the oven, and cool on a rack.
