"There isn't anything particularly "miraculous" about it, so don't worry if you aren't feeling very wonder-working! But if you have never made bread, pulling a fragrant loaf of homemade bread from the oven, can truly seem like a miracle." Home Joys Blog and used the pictures on the blog to show finished bread.

How to Make Miracle Bread ~ no kneading


  1. Mix 1/2 cup warm water, 2T yeast and 2T sugar together and allow the yeast to dissolve for a few minutes.
  2. Combine the 2 cups warm water, 2 T melted butter or oil and 2 tsp salt with yeast water.
  3. Mix 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.
  4. Form into a ball. Place in greased bowl and roll dough to grease the top of the dough.
  5. Let rise for 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature. It should expand to double it's size. ( i covered my bowl)
  6. Divide dough in half and roll out as you would pie dough.
  7. Roll up as a jelly roll. Place it on a greased baking sheet. ( I sprinkled a little corn meal on the cookie sheet)
  8. Make diagonal slits across the top with a sharp knife.
  9. Do the same with second ball of dough. Let rise about 1 hour or until double in size.
  10. Beat 1 egg and 2 T milk. Brush egg mixture over top of bread.
    Sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
  11. Bake 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!
  12. Note: 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."
