How to Make Miracle Bread ~ no kneading


  • 1Mix 1/2 cup warm water, 2T yeast and 2T sugar together and allow the yeast to dissolve for a few minutes.
  • 2Combine the 2 cups warm water, 2 T melted butter or oil and 2 tsp salt with yeast water.
  • 3Mix in six cups of flour. Stir well by hand or mixer equipped with dough hook. If dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.
  • 4Form into a ball. Place in greased bowl and roll dough to grease the top of the dough.
  • 5Let rise for 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature. It should expand to double it's size. ( i covered my bowl)
  • 6Divide dough in half and roll out as you would pie dough.
  • 7Roll up as a jelly roll. Place it on a greased baking sheet. ( I sprinkled a little corn meal on the cookie sheet)
  • 8Make diagonal slits across the top with a sharp knife.
  • 9Do the same with second ball of dough. Let rise about 1 hour or until double in size.
  • 10Beat 1 egg and 2 T milk. Brush egg mixture over top of bread.
    Sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
  • 11Bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Try to let it cool before cutting into the loaf! Bet you can't! This bread is awesome with butter and a sprinkle of garlic powder!
  • 12Note: She stated in the blog that "The dough can be used in a variety of ways. I'll demonstrate a long French type loaf, perfect for garlic bread. But you can put this dough in loaf pans or even make cinnamon rolls with it."
