Home made bread

Sometime in 2020, I found myself looking for home recipie for home made bread because we were all at home and there was a limit to the amount of certain food stuff one could purchase at a time. Naturally, bread flies off the kitchen cabinet when you have a whole family to feed. I came across this simple recipe and my family love it! Home made bread has since become a staple in my home. It is also really easy and quick to make!

So, what ingredients will you need?

Ingredients for one loaf of home made bread:

  2. Water (tepid temperature) 300mls
  3. Yeast (use instant yeast) 7g (I sachet)
  4. Salt 1 teaspoon
  5. Sugar 2-3 tablespoons


  1. Weigh, and measure all your items as described
  2. Place four in a clean pan or on a clean work top
  3. Add the salt, sugar and yeast to the flour

  1. Sprinkle flour on a dry work surface and knead the flour mixture using the heels of your hand - do this on a worktop for up to 4 to 5 minutes. Remember to turn your mixture unto a worktop if you started with your contents in a bowl.

  1. Place the dough in a container and sprinkle with flour. Cover with a clean kitchen cloth or clean film. Allow to prove and let the dough double in size.

  1. Knead the dough a second time only to dispel some air (not too much, this time to avoid over-kneading so you don't end up with a dense bread). Roll the dough into an oval or round shape. Place in a bread pan or tin. Allow to prove a second time until the dough rises- this is necessary to make the bread nice and fluffy as it refills with air bubbles. Place in an oven and bake for about 30 minutes.
  2. Allow the bread to cool slightly (about 2 minutes) before taking it out of the pan and let it cool on a rack. You may sprinkle or dust lightly with flour (optional), and enjoy!
