4-5 cups all-purpose Flour
Heat water in microwave for approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds (depends on your microwave) Temperature should be no hotter than 120 degrees.
Pour into a large mixing bowl, add the sugar, salt and oil. stir to dissolve the sugar and salt.
Next measure out 2 1/2 cups of flour and pour into the water.
Spread the flour evenly over the water, add the yeast.
Stir to mix and make a sponge like dough.
now continue to add more flour to form a soft pliable dough.
Knead in bowl or out on a floured board for 10 minutes. (Don't skimp on the kneading part) Cover and let rest for 1 to 2 hours.
Punch down and divide into 2 - 1lb loaves.
Roll each piece out to a rectangle shape, roll uo jelly roll style pinching dough together along seam line.

Get your hand wet with cold water and gently rub over the entire surface being careful not to deflate the bread.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12- 15 minutes. A
little longer baking time may be needed to ensure that the crust has browned nicely.
Remove from oven and pan and cool on a wire rack.
Hope you enjoy this great recipe once you try it you will never buy the store bought stuff again.
