I have a wonderful friend named Emily who got married just a week after I did and lives close to me. The other day I was telling her that I need to start making fresh bread every week and I just haven't found the inspiration. Well, she told me that she had a recipe that she had been using for 12+ years and it was so easy! So I decided to give it a try and let me tell you, it is soooo easy and the bread tastes amazing and looks incredible! So I thought I'd share the recipe so you can make homemade bread!
Emily's Bread Recipe:
1c Warm Water
Mix those three ingredients and let sit till it is quite foamy and you know your yeast is activated. Once it is foamy (usually takes 5 minutes or round about) add 1/4C oil.
Then take 3C flour and 1t salt and mix together. Then add your liquid to the flour and mix it and then knead it until it is smooth. Then place dough in a greased glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap (this will make sure your dough doesn't become hard and it also traps the warmth and rises faster). I let it rise about an hour and then punch it down and transfer the dough to my greased bread pan. Then you cover with the plastic wrap and let it rise again until the bread reaches the plastic wrap. Then take off the plastic wrap and place in a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for about 30 minutes and voila amazing bread!
