Makes 1 loaf

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in ¼ cup warm water. Stir in remaining 1 cup of warm water, salt, sugar, and olive oil. Let sit for several minutes until mixture becomes frothy and yeast activates.

Mix in 1 cup of bread flour. Beat with wooden spoon 50 strokes, ~1 min. Mix in remaining wheat and all-purpose flour.

Turn out dough onto lightly floured counter and knead 5 min. or until dough is smooth and elastic. Gather into a tight ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and set in warm place to raise, ~60 min. Once dough has doubled in size, turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead for 2 min. Shape into log and place in greased, 8.5” × 4.5” × 3” loaf pan. Let rise until doubled, ~45 min. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake 30 min. Once baked, allow the loaf to cool.
