How to Make Homemade Bread- EASY

Thursday, February 11, 2010 |
If any of my readers asked my family what kind of cook I am, they would be nice and just tell you I have really bad luck, but truth be told I am not a wonderful cook. I have a few things that I can make really well, but other than my cooking ability is limited.

My sister in law shared this amazing homemade bread recipe with me and my initial thought was that there was no way this was going to work out. Just a couple months ago at Christmas time I tried making a family bread recipe that went horribly wrong.

For some reason I thought I would make a second attempt at bread today and guess what! It went well! Good news for you, if it worked for me, it is bound to work for you too! I bet all of you even have the ingredients on hand too!

  • 2T. Yeast (I used the SAF yeast that you can just mix into the recipe without letting it rise! If you haven't used this before I swear by it)
  • 2 1/2 C. Warm Water
  • 3T. Sugar
  • 2T. Oil
  • 2t. Salt
  • 6 Cups Flour
1) Mix everything together except 3 cups of flour. I used my stand mixer, but a Bosch would work wonderfully too!
2) After it is mixed, add the remaining 3 cups slowly until it falls away from the bowl.
3) Cover and let raise 10 minutes.
4) Put the dough onto a floured surface and divide it half.
5) Divide each half into thirds.
6) Roll the dough out into pieces long enough to braid.
7) Braid your 2 loafs of bread.8) Cover and let rise for 15 more minutes.
9) Put each loaf onto a separate cookie sheet and cook for about 15-20 min or golden brown in an oven at 415 degrees.
10) After you take your bread out of the oven brush with butter.
11) Impress your family and friends by sharing with them your wonderful bread making skills. Then eat your yummy bread! Mine was super yummy with some raspberry jam on top!Enjoy!

A big thanks goes to my sister in law Mariam for sharing with me this recipe and ENCOURAGING me to give bread making another shot!

I must say I do pretty well at cooking, but I am SO scared of baking homemade bread! I don't know why, but using yeast just freaks me out that I'm going to mess something up, and spend so much time making the bread, and end up not having it rise and ruining it. Anyway, this recipe looks pretty easy, so I might just try it. Do you know, do you have to braid it, or would it work just as well if you just put it into a normal loaf pan?
