Easy homebaked bread


This recipe takes a bit of time, but it will reward you with the tastiest bread ever.


For the starter:

  • 20 g fresh yeast
  • 2 tablespoons white wheat flour
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 100 ml lukewarm water

 For the dough:

  • 500 g white wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 300 ml lukewarm water

Prepare the starter. Add crumbled yeast, flour, sugar and salt into 1 dl of lukewarm water to obtain a smooth mixture. Let rise for approximately 5 minutes.

Prepare the dough. Add the starter to flour, then add oil and salt. During kneading, add lukewarm water. Shape the dough into a ball, put it in the oven and start a special dough proofing program with hot air at 35 °C for 20–35 minutes. Or go old school and cover it with a cotton towel and let it rise for approximately 30–40 minutes (until the dough has doubled in volume).

Knead the dough one more time, form a loaf and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cover the bread with a cotton towel and let it rise for another 20–30 min.

Before baking, score the bread with 4 diagonal cuts to prevent it from cracking. Run the program or set it manually.

After baking, remove the bread from the oven, and cool before slicing.
