Village Bread Recipe

While below is the actual recipe we use at the Village bakery, it yields around 100 to 110 loaves of bread.

5 pails (12 litres) of water
1 pound of dry yeast
2 cups of salt
1 pound of sugar
150 pounds of flour (Superfine –white, or E.N.T. - whole wheat)

This recipe may be reduced to the following approximate quantities to make at home.
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 teaspoons of yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 4 cups (1 ¼ lbs.) of flour


  1. Dissolve the yeast in 2 tablespoons of warm water (not too hot).
  2. Add the sugar and stir.
  3. Let this mixture sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Mix together the salt and flour, then add the yeast mixture and the remaining water.
  5. Knead and let rise between ½ and ¾ of an hour in a warm location.
  6. Punch down the dough and then let it rise another ½ hour.
  7. Cut and place the dough in a pan.
  8. Cook in a preheated oven at 325-350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
