Preparation / Directions:
Mix water, yeast and sugar in Kitchen Aid, let rest (covered) for 5 mins. Add remaining ingredients while mixer is running until batter thickens. Change to dough hook. Knead on #4 for 5 mins, or until dough cleans sides of bowl and is not too sticky. Put dough in oiled bowl. Place 8 oz. water in microwave with dough, cook for 3 mins on 10% power. Let rest 3 mins. Heat again (same way) for 3 mins, let rest for 6 mins. Remove from micro and punch down. Shape dough and put in loaf pan. Repeat 3, 3, 3 and 6 for second rising. Bake at 375 for 35-40 mins.*You could, of course, skip the microwave method and use the conventional rising system.
