2. Add the sugar, salt, and vegetable oil to the yeast mixture and mix well.

3. Gradually add the flour to the mixture, stirring continuously until a sticky dough forms.

4. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size.

6. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a loaf pan.

8. Cover the loaf pan with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rise for another 30-45 minutes.

9. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until it is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

10. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

11. Slice the agege bread and serve it warm with butter or your favorite spread. Enjoy!
