An Amazing Loaf of Bread

I have made a lot of things in my day...but I have never baked a loaf of bread in the oven. I have made it in the breadmaker, but today my friend inspired me to begin baking bread. I am glad she did. This bread was super easy to make and it turned out awesome. It is not the healthiest recipe I found, but it was easy and turned out well. I did substitute one of the cups of flour for wheat flour so that helped.


  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package bread machine yeast
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Place the water, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine. Let the yeast dissolve and foam for 10 minutes. Add the oil, flour and salt to the yeast. Select the dough option on your breadmaker.
This usually takes 90 minutes or so.

After it is ready....put the bread in a pan and then let it sit to rise again for another 30 minutes.

After it's second time rising.....it is ready to bake.

Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes. If it starts to get to brown....add aluminum foil to the top and it will help it. Mine cooked for 35 minutes and was perfecto!!!
