Making Delicious Homemade Bread

Making homemade bread is simple and frugal! This will teach you how to make a loaf that is fluffy and tasty.

Let’s get started!

Once you get the hang of it, you can bake your own bread on a regular basis and never have to get it from the store again.

Gather your ingredients


For this recipe you need all purpose flour, yeast, egg, milk, sugar, water, and salt.

Proof the yeast


In a large bowl, mix the warm water and milk together. Add your yeast and sugar to warm water. Allow the yeast to proof, about 5-10 minutes, until bubbly on top.

Add the egg


Add the egg and salt into your yeast mixture.

Add the flour


Add the flour. Stir the flour in well until it is fully incorporated.



Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough well and roll it into a ball.

Let it rise


Using another bowl, grease the sides of the bowl with vegetable oil. Put the dough into a large, oiled bowl and punch it down.Allow the dough to rise for at least an hour until it has doubled in size. Punch it down again and let it rise for an additional hour or until doubled in size again.

Bake it up


Once the dough has risen, remove it from the bowl and split it into two halves. Shape each half into a loaf and place them into prepared loaf pans. Bake the loaves at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or for 25-30 minutes if you do one large loaf.
