Easy Homemade Bread


  • 3 1/2 Cups bread flour
  • 2 Tablespoons yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (110*F)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil


  1. Add first four (“dry”) ingredients to bowl of stand mixer and blend for a minute on low
  2. With mixer on low, slowly add 1 1/2 cups warm water, increase speed to knead for two minutes
  3. With mixer running, drizzle in olive oil, and knead two more minutes
  4. Cover bowl with towel and let dough rest one hour
  5. Shape dough into loaf, rolls, or flatbread (this is a versatile recipe!)
  6. Cover with tea towel and let rest until doubled in size
  7. Preheat oven to 350*F
  8. Bake 25-45 minutes; bread should be well browned and make a hollow “thump” sound when you tap the bottom after it’s taken out of pan. (Or use a thermometer–Bread is done baking when it reaches internal temperature of 190*F)
