  • Whisk together the semolina flour, ¾ cups all purpose flour, yeast and salt.
  • Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the molasses and water. Mix with your hands until a dough forms. (It should be a bit sticky, add a bit of all purpose flour if necessary to be able to work the dough).
  • Place dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for about 30 minutes to an hour until the dough doubles in size.
  • Add the remaining ½ cup of all purpose flour and knead into the dough. Knead for about ten minutes and then shape the loaf and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and allow the loaf to proof for an hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF (220ºC). 
  • Uncover the loaf and cut three slits into the top of the loaf. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Lower oven temperature to 375ºF (190ºC) and continue to bake for another 15 minutes.
  • The loaf will be done when golden brown and when it sounds hollow when knocked on the bottom.
  • Remove and cool on a cooling rack.
