How Do You Make Bread?


Quick Answer

To make bread, dissolve 1/4 ounce yeast in 2 1/4 cups of warm water. Add 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon salt and 3 cups of flour. Mix well, and gradually add enough flour to form soft dough. Knead the dough for eight to 10 minutes. Place the dough in an oiled bowl until it doubles, punch the dough down, and divide it into two pieces. Bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Alternately, dissolve 2 teaspoons active dry yeast in 10 ounces of warm water. Add 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup honey and 2 tablespoons canola oil to the yeast mixture. Mix well, and add 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 tablespoon salt. Mix to combine the ingredients, and add an additional 3/4 cup all-purpose flour and 2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour to the mixture.

Knead the dough for eight to nine minutes, and place the dough in an oiled bowl until it nearly doubles in size. Press the dough down, form the dough into two loaves, and let the dough rise again after placing it in the pans. Bake the bread at 375 F in a preheated oven for 30 minutes. To make bread quickly, preheat the oven to 200 F, and place the dough in the oven to rise.
