How To Make easy homemade bread

  • 1
    1-In a large mixing bowl, whisk together warm water and honey until honey is dissolved. Add yeast, and cover with a towel.
  • 2
    2-In about 10-20 minutes, your mixture should look delightfully frothy.
  • 3
    3-Mix in your salt, and then add the bread flour one cup at a time. (Use the whisk for the first three cups and then switch to a wooden spoon or silicone spatula for the last three cups.)
  • 4
    4-Add a little extra flour to your hands and knead the dough, about 5 minutes. (Knead the dough right in the large mixing bowl. It keeps your counter cleaner.) Place kneaded dough in a large, greased bowl and cover with the towel.
  • 5
    5-After an hour, your dough should have risen significantly.
  • 6
    6-Punch the dough for awhile then knead again for a couple of minutes. *Divide into two lightly greased loaf pans and cover with your towel once more.
  • 7
    7-After allowing the dough to rise for 30 minutes in the loaf pans, bake in a preheated oven at 325 for 30-35 minutes.
  • 8
    A lot of bread recipes use an oven at 350, 325 works better if you use honey.
