  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Salt plays many roles in yeast bread. It slows the yeast’s growth, allowing the dough to develop more complex flavors and a stronger structure. It also contributes to the finished bread’s flavor and shelf life.
  • Some packaged breads have more than 20 ingredients! This loaf includes just six easy-to-pronounce ones.

      May I know if I use instant yeast in this recipe, do l need to dissolve it in the warm water? Will the volume of the water be same? Please kindly respond to this query. Thank you.

      Sounds good but as Marla asked, what does "stir down dough" mean?

      The great thing about this recipe is the speed -- about 2 hours from start to dinner table.

      This is very easy to make and I love the way it tastes. My only complaint is that it crumbles very easily and so it was a challenge to slice it and use it for grilled cheese. It tastes so good though that I'll be making it again anyway.I did decrease the sugar to one tablespoon because one review said the bread was slightly sweet and I didn't want a bread that tasted sweet at all.

      Another simple bread recipe from Taste of Home. I've made this a few times, it makes the house smell amazing. It is easy to add simple additions to it. We love it with a bit of shredded cheese.

      Very simple to make and is very good but more like a dense bread vs. a kneaded yeast bread. We loved it toasted too and the house smells wonderful while baking.

      So easy! Baked in a round 2 1/2qt casserole. After it was done baking, I brushed the top with a little butter and covered it with foil. Disappeared quickly, will definitely make two loaves next time!
