What you do: 

Dissolve yeast in water. Add salt, vegan sugar, and 1/2 the flour. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed, or 300 strokes. Add remaining flour.

Bake 40-50 minutes between 325-375 degrees, until brown and cooked through. (Temp. depends on altitude/conditions, use best judgment) When you tap the top it should sound hollow.
Hints: 1. To rise, put in oven temp as low as it will go. 2. When adding second portion of flour, may not take it all, only add until not gooey/sticky This recipe doubles.

I made this last night and it took forever to bake!  Regardless, it's quite good.  I added 1/2 cup rolled oats and a few handfuls of raisins.
