Homemade Brown Bread Recipe Take 2

I’ve heard from a few people that my homemade brown bread recipe is far too “vague” to be easily replicated and that perhaps it’s not really a recipe as all.  I never use recipes to cook and generally just like adding a pinch of this and a pinch of that until everything is delicious, but that’s certainly not everyone’s style.  Here’s my less vague recipe:

Heat up 1/2 cup water.  Mix in 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons oil.  Add 2 tablespoons yeast.  Let bubble for 10 minutes.

Add 2 cups white flour and 2 cups brown flour.  Mix with a fork first and then knead it all together, adding more flour if necessary.  You can also add more water if necessary at the mixing with fork stage.

Form into a ball, loosely cover and let rest somewhere warm until doubled.  Punch it down, add 1/2 cup flaxseeds and knead it again.  Form it into a loaf shape.  Let rise again until doubled.  Then cook (I use the highest setting on my countertop oven) for about 20 minutes.
