Homemade Bread it is so easy

Pin It

Here is my favorite food, that does harm to my waist, but satisfies my taste. If I can stop eating bread, pasta, butter and cheese, I think my weight would have been under control. I like to make it with whole wheat, but if I want my kids happier, I will use unbleached white flour. 


3 1/2 whole wheat all purpose flour

3 eggs, plus one more for egg wash

1/4 cup butter or vegetable oil

1/4 cup of sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon dray yeast

1 1/2 cup of water


Mix dry yeast and 1/2 cup warm water and 1/2 cup flour. Cover and let it bubble for 15 minutes. Mix all ingredients together and knead with hand for about 10 minutes. Add more flower if it is too sticky in your hand. 

Make the dough into a ball and place it in a large bowl. Cover and keep in warm place, covered with warm and wet towel. Your dough shouldn't feel sticky, ans should be easy to pull the dough easily.
  Let the dough rise until the dough double its size. Once it double it's size, press the dough with your hand and let the dough rise again for the second time to double it’s size. This time it will take less time to rise. Cover the dough and let it rise again for about 30 minutes.
Start and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Egg wash the dough and sprinkle with sesame seed  ready for baking. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

  4. All is great, SHOCK I was in bed by 10 last night rofl
    How are you?

  5. Your comment above sounds like one that I've said many times in our house. I like to use wheat flour but my kids like all-purpose white. aagh. At what point do you put it in a baking dish? Would you be willing to share this recipe post at our Making Monday link party? We would love it and think our readers would, too. Thanks. Have a fabulous day.

  6. Yummy, I have made yeast cinnamon rolls etc but never made a loaf of bread or rolls. Would love to one of these days. Andi

  7. I love kneading bread- there is nothing more therapeutic. Definitely going to try this recipe- love that it's whole wheat! Found you on Ducks n'a Row!

  8. Haha Sara! Those are my three food evils as well! I just went through an entire loaf of freshly baked french myself! Uggh!! Love this recipe! Think I may make these for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing and thanks for linking up!

  9. Thank you for sharing about bread baking. I have made bread for years. I have made it with white flour (you are right about keeping kids happy) and whole wheat that I grind and before that I used to buy it at a 200 year old grist mill.

  10. Hi Sara. Thanks for linking up this delicious homemade bread recipe to the Sweet Wednesday Link Party! I agree, homemade bread is easy to make and tastes so good! Hope you're having a great week.
