This recipe won first place in a special competition at the Ohio State Fair
this year: Cooking with Ohio's Soy Foods, sponsored by the Ohio Soybean
Council. It also received an "award of Excellence" rosette.
You can also use this recipe in a bread machine, either by going through
the whole cycle, or by using the dough setting and shaping the dough into
large braid, which is what I usually do.. If you're not wild about soy, you

2. Combine the bread flour and soy flour in a large bowl.

7. Let rise until doubled in bulk, about an hour.

9. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled,
