Breads, Yeast Breads

One Hour Homemade Bread

This really works.  Mix it up, shape the loaves, and just one rise then bake.  Delicious tender white bread ready for an after school snack or dinner.

5¼ cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1½ tsp salt
2 pkt (4½ tsp) dry yeast
2 cups very warm water (about 110°)
1/3 cup oil

In bowl of mixer, add flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.  Pour in warm water and oil.  Mix for 5 minutes.  Dough will be very sticky. Spray counter and 2 bread pans with non-stick spray.  Shape loaves, place in pans and cover with towel.  Let rise 25 minutes.  Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes.  Makes 2 loaves.

    1. Hi Norma, no I have not frozen this bread but I am sure it would freeze just as well as other breads. So glad the recipe worked well for you!

      1. Awesome recipe. I have frozen the bread with good results. Works great. I also sometimes replace two cups of flour with whole wheat.

  1. I tried this recipe and it turned out awesome. Thank you for posting it for all.
    I modified it a bit by adding some whole wheat flour and ragi flour to it and proportionately reducing the quantity of refined flour …. every one at home enjoyed it very much.

  2. This is the best recipe! Thank you for postingt this. My kids love the bread, and it’s the easiest and fastest bread recipe I’ve found!

    1. Great, so glad the recipe is helpful for you Tammy! Homemade bread hot out of the oven as an after school snack for a kid, making great memories! Amazing smell to come home to!

  3. Best quickest bread recipe! My kids just gobbled up 2 slices each! With no butter! We might need to tell their Daddy we only made one loaf 🙂

    1. Oh dear, so sorry that happened! The only reasons I can think of are if it raised too long/high and was too airy and delicate or if you used instant yeast instead of active dry yeast. I always use active dry yeast, not instant. From what I’ve read, instant needs less time to rise and so the time to raise would be less. Don’t know if this helps? Hope you will not be discouraged. ;o)

  4. I usually use frozen dough when I want “homemade” bread, because doing it from scratch seems like so much work. But my aunt put me on to this recipe yesterday, and, oh man, it’s a game changer!! It turned out beautiful and perfect, and my family happily woofed it all down! In fact, it was so easy that I’m making it again today. This could be a problem… haha. For some variety, I added 2 tsp. cinnamon to the dry ingredients today – it already smells heavenly. I’m thinking I’m going to try adding different spices next time too. Maybe some garlic, oregano, and basil for an Italian taste, or cumin, chili powder, and red pepper flakes for a southwestern bread… Like I said, this recipe might be dangerous for me 😉 Thanks!

  5. Hi! Can u use a hand mixer? I just have a basic mixer I use for cakes, nothing fancy. If not could you tell me another way to mix it? I would really like to try to this recipe! Thank You, Catherine

  6. HI, I made this easy bread recipe. I’m not sure what I did, but, mine was higher in oven and after taking out it deflated, was yummy though.
