Home Made Bread is Better!

  • dried active yeast x 2 tbsp
  • water x 1 - 1 1/5 cups
  • sugar or honey x 2 tbsp
  • flour x 3 cups
  • salt x 1/5 tbsp
  • butter to brush on top of the bread
Mix the yeast, sugar or honey in 1 cup of lukewarm water. Let it sit for 10 minutes until the yeast is active. Mix the dry and the wet ingredients and knead until the dough becomes smooth and a bit elastic. Transfer the dough into a bowl, cover with a damped cloth and let it rise for 45 minutes in a warm environment. Punch the dough, knead for a minute or two and let it rise again for 45 minutes. repeat this last step one more time and then bake the bread in 350°F oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Brush the top of the bread with melted butter halfway through the baking process. Let it cool before serving.
