  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 ½ tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • ½ cup warm water
  • Cornmeal (to sprinkle)


  1. In a large bowl, mix half of the flour with the yeast, sugar, salt, warm milk, and warm water.  Let it sit for a few minutes to give the yeast a chance to activate.

  2. Add in the rest of the flour and mix until just combined. I simply mixed my dough together by hand (it's sticky!) but you can use a stand mixer with a dough hook if you have one. Make sure you don't over mix!

  3. Grease 2 loaf pans and sprinkle cornmeal in the bottom of each pan. Divide the batter into the pans, sprinkle more cornmeal on the top, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size.

  4. Bake at 375ºF for 35 to 40 minutes.
