Ingredients

  • BREAD MAKING TIME!! MMMMMMMM

  • 1 1/4 c
    water, warm
  • 3 Tbsp
    oil
  • 1/2 c
    potato flakes
  • 4 Tbsp
    sugar
  • 3 c
    flour
  • 1 pkg
    active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp
    salt
  • 1 tsp
    sugar (for yeast)

How to Make Quick Easy Homemade Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Start by activating the yeast with the warm water and 1 tsp of sugar, quick stir and set aside.
  2. Put flour, sugar, salt and potato flakes in a mixing bowl. Give it a quick stir to mix ingredients together.
  3. This 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!
  4. Add 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.
  5. Once it comes together put out on a lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes till dough is nice and smooth.
  6. Place dough in a very lightly oiled bowl and let rise about 1 - 2 hours, doubles or more in size.
  7. Once 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.
  8. Let sit for another 20 minutes or so and brush with egg whites and bake for 24 minutes on 375 degrees
  9. Take 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.
