Basic Homemade Bread
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 30 min.
Makes2 loaves (16 pieces each)
I don't know where this recipe was last year. I scoured the internet looking for a recipe with a 9 x 5 pan. I used 4 cups of white bread flour and added in enough whole wheat flour to make the dough and got two soft, perfect loaves.
Absolutely love this recipe , thankyou so much this bread is exactly how I wanted my bread to be ??
This is the best bread I’ve ever made. Found this recipe about 3weeks ago and just made my 7th batch this morning, hubby can’t stop eating this.
Can someone please tell me if this can be adapted for a bread maker? I live in hot and humid Florida, and needless to say, the oven is the least used appliance I own. I actually use it to store pots and pans. Would love to be able to make this. Sounds wonderful!
This was my very first attempt to make bread of any kind. It was easy to do and came out perfect. I actually made mine in the air fryer and cooked it at 325 x 18 minutes. The texture was perfect and it wasn’t too dense. I followed the recipe exactly except for using the air fryer oven.
I love to bake, so I've tried many different basic bread recipes. All of the ones I've made turn out too gooey on the inside (not thoroughly cooked) or too hard and crunchy. Additionally, there are so many ingredients and it takes forever to make a loaf of bread. This bread is the best bread I've ever had in. my. life. It is such an easy recipe, with only 6 ingredients, and it takes 20 minutes to whip up, aside from rising + baking time. The flavor is wonderful and the smell of baking bread fills the house. 10/10 for this recipe. AMAZING!
A nice easy recipe, which I always double. Vegan, too, if you don't butter the hot crust when it comes out (which I do!) Our Noble Homestead go-to recipe. Mmmm. Proudly served at the Magic Glamp, with an olive oil substitution.
Perfect! I am not in any way a professional baker (I am more of a newbie), and this bread is so easy to make! Rather than kneading on a counter, I just kept the dough in the standmixer and used the dough hook.... turns out great! Thank you so much for this recipe! :) The family loves it!
This was the first homemade bread recipe I have ever tried and it was so worth it! This is a very time consuming recipe, but well worth the wait. It's actually a simple recipe that is easy to follow and make; the resting time for the dough just takes a bit. Wonderful recipe! Tastes so good!
Gerri, the oven may have been to high for the yeast and it died, keep in warm moist area, about 80 degrees. you can put them in the oven on minimal heat but if you do, put them on a large baking dish thats got water on it to keep the humidity up. Dont bake the bread until the bread has risen to the top of the pan, but not over, otherwise the little it will rise in the oven heat will spill too far over the pan. Carrie, sugar is the simplest of the 'starches' that yeast needs to form, you can use honey or even corn starch, sugar just allows the yeast to propagate fastest. if you use honey or starch it will take longer. if you use these let the yeast work on the liquid mix before adding to the flour, that gives them the boost needed to really work into the flour. Remember not to put yeast into too hot of liquid mix or it make kill it.
