  • 1 cup water very warm but not hot
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar plus one pinch for starter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce room temperature
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 pat vegan butter Myokos


  • Mix together a pinch of sugar with the yeast into a bowl of warm water (not hot, but very warm to touch). Let set for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
  • In a large metal bowl, mix together 1/4 cup sugar, olive oil, and applesauce. Mix until well combined (this is going into the oven so metal is preferred).
  • Add in the yeast mixture and one cup of flour to the large bowl. Stir with a spatula until mixed. Once smooth, add add another cup of flour and combine.
  • Add remaining cup and a half of flour and knead with dough with your hands for about 8-10 minutes. The dough should not be sticky at all. If it is, add a bit more flour until it’s not - I usually end up adding at least 2 Tablespoons.
  • Turn oven off. Rub 1 tbsp oil over the dough and place it back inside the bowl. Wet a towel with water to make damp. Cover bowl with cloth.
  • Place in oven and let rise for 60 minutes.
  • After timer goes off, cut the bread into three, even sized balls. Place inside a greased bread pan (I use olive oil to grease). Place back in oven (still off) for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees. When oven has reached temperature, place in and cook for 30 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before slicing.
