Easy Homemade Bread

Have failed at many bread recipes lately, so I'm so happy now to share this easy recipe from DIY Home Sweet Home.  I divided their recipe in half to make one loaf of bread. Here's my adaptation below.

Mix together:
2.5 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 tbs salt

1 1/2 cups milk
Add to milk:
1/8 cup sugar
1 tbs yeast
Mix and let set for 5 minutes to dissolve yeast.

Add milk mixture to flour then add 1 egg and 1/8 cup oil.
Add more flour (3 cups) one by one and mix along the way.
Knead, adding a bit of flour to hands a few times to keep things un-sticky.
Let rise 1 1/2 hrs then punch down.
Place in an oiled loaf pans. 
Let dough rise for another 1 1/2 hrs.
Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or until done.
Butter top.
Cool slightly then remove from pans.

  1. I have been making sourdough bread lately but the humidity is not helping with the rising! Just stopped by to say hello. I don't always comment but enjoy your posts. Stay Cool!
