How to Make Quick Easy Homemade Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Start by activating the yeast with the warm water and 1 tsp of sugar, quick stir and set aside.
  • 2Put flour, sugar, salt and potato flakes in a mixing bowl. Give it a quick stir to mix ingredients together.
  • 3This is what my yeast looked like after about 15-18 minutes, I had to leave it for a several minutes, to my surprise it had grown!
  • 4Add the activated yeast mixture and oil to the flour and stir by hand using a spoon, I used a plastic one shaped just like a wooden spoon.
  • 5Once it comes together put out on a lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes till dough is nice and smooth.
  • 6Place dough in a very lightly oiled bowl and let rise about 1 - 2 hours, doubles or more in size.
  • 7Once its nice and puffy give it a punch down and cut it into pieces and stretch three pieces to long fat strips and braid them. The rest of dough just stretch to a nice long loaf, like mine. I also sprinkled Lawry's seasoning salt & garlic powder on the braided bread and the other is plain.
  • 8Let sit for another 20 minutes or so and brush with egg whites and bake for 24 minutes on 375 degrees
  • 9Take bread out of oven it should be golden brown, if not let it go back in and watch it closely! I put mine on a cooling rack to cool down.
