Choose your measure:


  1. In a large bowl, or in the pan of your bread machine, pour the boiling water over the bulgur. Let the mixture sit until it's lukewarm, about 15 minutes.
  2. Combine — by hand, mixer, or bread machine — the bulgur with the rest of the ingredients, and knead until the dough is smooth.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl, and allow the dough to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until it's not quite doubled in bulk.
  4. Remove the dough from the bowl or from the bread machine, shape it into a loaf, and place it in a lightly greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" bread pan. Cover the pan with lightly greased plastic wrap, and set the loaf aside to rise until it's crowned about 1" over the rim of the pan, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  6. Bake the bread for 35 minutes or until it tests done, draping it lightly with aluminum foil, shiny side up, after 20 minutes if it appears to be getting too brown. Remove the pan from the oven, and turn the loaf out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Store the bread for 4 days on the counter, or up to 3 months in the freezer.
