Simple, Easy, 5-Ingredient Bread

Here’s another from the archives, that people have been requesting!

Fresh from the oven!

Soft on the inside, with a nice little crust on the outside.

Delicious, homemade bread!
It slices beautifully!

This bread is a bit dense, but not super heavy like I thought it might be. Yummy stuff! Are ya ready to bake? 

That’s it! Pretty simple, eh?

I should mention a couple of my personal notes here.

First, I changed the amount of yeast in the original recipe from 1 3/4 tablespoons to 2 tablespoons, simply because it is easier. lol It made the bread rise nicely though, and I think if I had used less, it would have been more dense.

Secondly, I didn’t ever turn out my bread to knead on the counter. I let my KitchenAid do all the work for me. :)  If you don’t have a KitchenAid though (or a good bread/dough mixer), make sure not to skip that step!

Lastly, if you don’t have honey, you can use the same amount of sugar as you would honey, but add 1/4 cup of oil to the recipe when you are adding the salt. (step 4)  Then bake it at 350° instead of 325°.

Even though I know this was posted on Facebook, I want to give you the link to the original recipe. Why? Because it is the nice thing to do.

You can find it here.

Happy Baking, my friends!

    Bread is good for the soul =-) This looks amazing – do you think I could use the same recipe in a breadmaker?

      Hi Ronni!

      I think just about any bread recipe can be made in a bread machine, but most times you need to cut the original recipe in half. Check out this page – it tells you different methods you can use to convert: Converting Traditional Recipes to Bread Machine

      Hope this helps!

    I bet the Honey adds a nice sweetness. I’ll have to try that the next time. Thank you!

      You’re welcome, Carla! I love baking, and especially bread, but the easier the recipes are, the better. LOL! If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
