Begin by adding warm water to a bowl. Sprinkle yeast and sugar over water. Let sit until bubbly. Usually about 15 minutes.
Add dry ingredients and oil.
Let it mix in stand mixer until combined. Check consistency to ensure a soft dough that’s just past the “not sticky” stage. Add a little more flour if the dough is still sticky.
Let the mixer “knead” the dough on low-speed for 5 minutes.
Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for about 10 minutes.
Punch dough down. You can use this as a stress reliever if you want!
Divide dough in half and shape into long loaves. Slice the tops of each loaf in a diagonal cut.
Place loaves on baking sheet. Brush tops of loaves with beaten egg.
