How to Make Easy Bread

by Masan 9 .

Great tasty bread you can make in just over 2 hours

Supplies

  • 4 Cups Flour
  • One packet of yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 2 Cups of Lukewarm Water
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Ingredients. I used kosher salt but it doesn't matter. You can also use other kinds of yeast.

    Step 2

    Mix flour and salt. Set aside.

    Step 3

    Next, dissolve sugar in lukewarm water. Then sprinkle yeast on top. Do not stir.

    Step 4

    When the yeast is foamy like this ^^ You can gently stir it then add it to your bowl of flour and salt.

    Step 5

    Mix together with wooden spoon. Dough will be very sticky. When it looks like this it is ready to start rising. I was lazy so I didn't put the dough in a new bowl but either way works

    Step 6

    Let dough rise for at least 1 hour in a warm place. I like to preheat my oven at 300 for just 1 minute. Turn it off then place the dough inside with a damp towel on top.

    Step 7

    Dough rising

    Step 8

    Dough should be doubled in size after an hour sitting.

    Step 9

    Before handling the dough, find two oven safe bowls. For a disc shape I use a Pyrex bowl.

    Step 10

    For a more loaf like shape I use this bowl. In this case I will use both kinds.

    Step 11

    Grease the bowls with a generous amount of butter, oil, spray or whatever you prefer. Set aside.

    Step 12

    This part can be tricky. Take two forks and divide dough in half. Punch the dough down as best you can then put one half in each prepared bowl.

    Step 13

    Like this^^ then let the dough rise a second time for 30 minutes.

    Step 14

    After dough has risen again, Bake at 425 for 10 minutes then at 375 for 22-25 more minutes.

    Step 15

    They should be a nice golden brown color. If you greased the bowls enough they should come right out. Let sit for at least 10 mins.

    Step 16

    Step 19
