Recipe: Daisy Organic Soft-Wheat Bread


  • 5 1/2 cups Daisy White Pastry Flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dried yeast
  • 12 oz. water
  1. Stir water, salt and yeast together. Add flour and mix until moist. Cover and let rise six to eight hours.
  2. Divide dough in half, kneading the portion to be baked for only half a minute. (This dough may be stickier than what you are used to.) Place on a cooking sheet dusted with corn meal or use a silicone baking pad. Let dough rest for one hour while you preheat an oven stone to 450 degrees.
  3. Dust the load with flour and slash the top with quarter-inch deep cuts. Slide dough onto a hot stone. Pour one cup of hot water in a pan below the stone for moisture. Bake for 30 minutes.
  4. The other half of the dough can be refrigerated for three to four days in a covered pan. Shape, let it rest and bake as directed.
