Crusty homebread for any occasion

Few items complement a pasta dish like a nice, thick slice of bread. My "crusty homebread" is so dense with flavor that you may not even want a pasta dish with it! The gritty texture is perfect sustenance for after a hearty trek through the woods. This bread is always a hit at parties: each slice is so fulfilling that we usually don't even finish the loaf by the end!

Crusty homebread is a snap and you'll be enjoying it for up to a week after baking.

  1. 4 cups whole wheat flour
  2. 1 cup lukewarm water
  3. 1/2 teaspoon yeast
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Set the oven to 400F
  2. Proof the yeast in the water
  3. Add salt and mix well
  4. Gradually add flour until you have a solid brick of moist flour
  5. Knead for 3 minutes
  6. Let the dough rise for 8-10 minutes
  7. Place the dough in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the crust starts browning
  8. Serve and enjoy immediately!
