How To Make Homemade Bread
Share the Love:
In this video recipe, Chef Sydney will show you how to make bread from scratch using yeast, flour, and other ingredients you probably have in your pantry! This bread is fluffy, moist, and easy to make and works great for sandwiches.
- Add the yeast to the hot water. The water should be hot to the touch, but not burning hot (I wait until hot water comes out of my faucet and that's the hot water I use). Add 1 tablespoon of sugar. Mix well until yeast dissolves. Let sit for about 5 minutes or until it starts to foam.
- In a large bowl, add the rest of the sugar, the olive oil, the salt, and then the egg and mix well with a spatula.
- When the yeast foams, add it to the bowl as well and start mixing.
- Add one cup at a time of flour and mix until the flour absorbs liquid. When 4 cups have been added transfer to the board (make sure the board is dusted with flour too). If the dough is too sticky add more flour (a little at a time.)
- Knead the dough for 5 minutes. Transfer back to the bowl and cover loosely with plastic. Let it rest in a warm oven for 45 minutes (turn the light on in the oven and let the dough sit inside oven).
- Once the dough doubled in size, take about a handful of dough and form a ball (dust with flour if sticky.) Flatten and cut 5 slits. Pinch each cutout to form the flower petals. Plac eon cookie sheet previously dusted with flour. If forming buns, form balls and fold four inwards a few times, then roll and place on cookie sheet.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until brown at 375F
