Quick and Easy White Bread

I’ve always wanted to bake bread. The smell of bread baking in the oven is gorgeous. It’s lovely. It’s beautiful. It’s carbilicious.

And i can finally say, i have baked a decent loaf of bread/ bread rolls. These are perfect for anytime of the day! I mean, who doesn’t love bread!! Alright, enough talking, let’s get cooking:

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ tsp of yeast (I used a whole pack of yeast)
  • 2 ¼ cup of tap water
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp oil (I used olive oil, but any oil will do!)
  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 4 – 6 cups of self-raising flour

Steps:

  1. In a large bowl, pour in the water
  2. Heat it up in the microwave for 20 seconds*
  3. Add in white sugar
  4. Add in the yeast
  5. Mix and wait for it to start foaming or for bubbles to form
  6. Add in 4 cups of flour and start mixing until dough doesn’t stick to the side of the bowl. If it’s sticking, add in ½ cup more of flour and keep going until it’s not sticking.
  7. Knead the dough
  8. Roll it into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let it rest for 1 hour or until double in size.
  9. Roll the dough out onto a floured surface until it’s around 20cm long width wise
  10. Roll into desired shape. check out this link which teaches you how to roll bread dough.
  11. Let it rest for a few more minutes
  12. Heat oven to 200°C
  13. Place baking tray on the top rack
  14. Bake…:
    • Rolls for 13 minutes on the top rack
    • Loafs for 13 minutes on the top then additional 10 in the middle

Enjoy with butter!!!
