My family absolutely loves my home-baked bread. When I prepare the bread recipe and the smell of bread in the oven permeates the house, suddenly the kitchen tends to become overpopulated with family members all waiting to grab a slice of the freshly baked bread.

Bread is one of the most basic and fundamental foods of civilization. Today, bread is an item found in almost every store and restaurant and is a common dietary staple for most people.

While there are many different ways to make bread at home, there are a few tried and true recipes that produce consistently great results.

Baking your own bread is a great way to create something delicious and unique without relying on a store-bought loaf. It also gives you the opportunity to shape the bread to your liking and experiment with different flavors and varieties. And let’s face it, nothing smells and tastes better than homemade bread!

There are a variety of ways to make bread at home, from old-fashioned artisan loaves to quick, easy, and delicious dinner rolls. Some may require a bit more time, but all are worth the effort and produce baked goods with a texture and flavor that cannot be matched.

Notes

You may find that it is better to double the recipe and bake two loaves at a time. This bread does not normally last for longer than an hour or so after it comes out of the oven as my family usually devours it like a pack of hungry wolves. A second loaf ensures that there is at least some left for later.

Some people simply do not have the time to mix the dough, allow to proof, knead, allow to proof, etc. For busy people like yourself, there is a solution. You can purchase an automatic bread maker that does it all for you.

Automatic bread makers allow you to add the required ingredients, set the timer, and then the bread maker does the rest for you.
