  • 2 ½ cups flour all-purpose or bread
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon yeast one packet
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon sugar or honey


  • In a bowl whisk together the flour, yeast, and salt.
  • Make a well in the center and add to it the sugar, oil, and water.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Knead the dough on floured surface for about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Feed it more flour as needed to get it no longer sticky.
  • Place in a bowl and cover. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour in a warm place.
  • Roll the dough out on a floured surface and form it up into a log.
  • Place log in a pan, tucking ends underneath and cover. Let rise again until doubled.
  • Bake in a greased bread pan for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  • Cool for at least one hour before slicing and serving.

Bread machine option

  • Place ingredients in order of owner manual for your specific bread machine.
  • Turn the machine to "dough cycle" and close the lid. Waiting for the beep.
  • Take the dough and turn it onto a lightly floured surface. Knead a minute, roll into log, and place in a greased bread pan. Tuck the ends underneath as you place it in the pan.
  • Cover and rise 1 hour or until doubled. Bake uncovered 35-40 min until golden brown.


To help direct the bread where to go as it rises and bakes, you can score down the center of the loaf with a sharp knife. Then as the bread bakes and expands, it will rise upwards towards that mark rather than try to spill out one or both sides or the pan.
