Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Anna McCartney


6 cups unbleached flour
3 cups warm water
2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp yeast


Mix yeast with 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon sugar, and let sit 10 minutes. Add rest of ingredients and beat for 10 minutes. You can do this by hand, but you'll appreciate it if you have a stand mixer. Dough will become stringy. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in fridge overnight. Spoon onto cookie sheets and bake at 425 °F until lightly brown.


This is my mother's recipe. My kids call her "Mamie" and this recipe has taken the name "Mamie Bread" and is a HUGE hit in our family. It's really nice for having company over for breakfast - you do all the work the day before and you'll be all calm and collected when your guests arrive! :)
