Hurray!!! I baked my first bread- easy home made bread recipe

I was very tempted to bake a bread after seeing many bloggers attempting to make it and

getting wonderful results. But at the same time I was apprehensive about it and thought it was a very messy process and involved lot of work. I look for less work because I can do it only when my baby is sleeping.

Finally I decided one fine day to start my adventure instead of just brooding over it. I got a simple beginner’s recipe from here. I started working with the yeast and then the flour. And then I was worried,”what if my dough does not rise? But it did and I regained my confidence.

The bread came out well, smelled good too.

This blogging has really made me enthusiastic. I keep looking for new recipes and certainly make me do things which I had never thought I will be even trying!!

What I learned from my mistakes-The crust was a bit thick due to prolonged baking time. I should reduce the baking time next time when I do it. The inner portion was quite soft and spongy.

Hurray!!! I baked my first bread- easy home made bread recipe Yum
  1. In a large bowl, add warm water and then the yeast cells. Keep stirring till it dissolves. Then add the salt ,sugar,butter,milk. Mix well.
  2. Then add flour gradually and keep stirring till the dough chases the spoon around the bowl. Keep the dough on a floured surface and knead well using your fingers until you get a smooth , elastic and non sticky dough. Keep this dough in a greased bowl so that the upper surface of the dough is greased.Keep it covered and allow to rise for 1 hour. After an hour , punch the risen dough and knead on a floured surface .
  3. Preheat oven at 180c. Set the dough on a loaf pan. Let it rise again for 30 minutes. Bake the bread for 45 minutes till golden brown. Turn the bread on kitchen towel.

    Normally, homemade breads have thicker crust. If you want to soften it a bit, you have to brush melted butter on top, when the bread is out of the oven.
