Easy Vegan Bread with European Flour

Cuisine:

Italian cuisine

This vegan bread is made with only five ingredients: water, flour, quick-rise yeast, maple syrup, and salt.

Ingredients

cups of European soft wheat flour- 4cup

packet of quick-rise yeast1packet

teaspoons maple syrup- 2teaspoon

salt- 1/2spoon

cups warm water2cup

Preparation

Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper and set oven to 400 degrees. (If you have a convection bake setting on your oven, now is the time to use it! Convection baking is great for baking an even loaf of bread.)

Combine flour, yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl and gently stir.

In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups of warm water and maple syrup. Stir to dissolve syrup.

Add water/maple syrup mixture to the dry ingredients and mix. Mix to blend ingredients together, kneading or intense stirring is not necessary. The dough should be sticky.

Pour dough into the 9×5 loaf pan that in lined with parchment paper. Cover with a small towel and let rise for 20-30 minutes. (I let my dough rise until it barely reaches the top of the loaf pan.)

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it cool. Then slice and enjoy!
