WHAT YOU NEED:
1/2 cup warm water
2 teaspoons instant yeast
6 -8 cups white flour,
1 1/2 cups coconut milk,
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
**Mix together the warm water, yeast, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 2 TABLESPOONS of flour in a small bowl and set aside for 10 minutes. (Unusual to put flour into proofing.).
**Warm milk, oil, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and salt in the microwave for about 20 seconds-stir together and set aside. Don’t let the mixture boil, you just want to heat it up a bit.
**Sift 5 cups of flour into a large bowl.
**Once the milk mixture has cooled enough that you can comfortably stick a finger in it, mix it into the yeast.
**Add all wet ingredients to the flour.
**Mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. If sticky, add flour until you have a dough that you can knead.
**Dust your counter with flour and knead the dough until smooth, about 5-8 minutes. If the dough becomes sticky as you knead just sprinkle with flour as required. You may have to add up to a cup of flour at this stage depending on the humidity of your kitchen.
**Put in greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let rise until double in size.
**Punch down and knead for two or three minutes.
**Make into two large or six small round balls.
**Place on a greased pan-let rise again, bake at 400 F/205 C for 30-35 minutes until the tops brown and the bottom of a loaf, when tapped, sounds hollow.
