Easy Homemade Wheat Bread

So a few weeks ago I took my first shot at bread. I was nervous to try making bread with yeast so I opted out of that. This time, I got BOLD! Aka…I used yeast. This bread is very easy but it is an over-nighter (meaning you need to let it rise overnight) so it requires some planning ahead. Here’s what you’ll need:

1.5 cups warm water
1.5 cup wheat flour
1.5 cup white unbleached flour
½ cup of white flour
1 teaspoon of yeast
1 teaspoon of salt

You can opt to use just one type of flour. The original recipe called for only white but I was feeling bold!

Mix the dry ingredients, aside from the ½ cup of white flour, well.

Add in the water and mix until it is a wet dough.

Cover with either clingwrap or foil and then a kitchen towel over top. Let it sit in a warm place over night.

When ready, preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Knead and use the extra ½ cup of flour to form it into a ball.

Spray your bread pan lightly with nonstick spray.

Place the dough into your pan and bake for approximately 40-50 minutes. Keep an eye on the bread. Once the top crust looks done, leave in the oven for about ten more minutes.

Once done, take out of the oven. Wait at least 10 minutes before you dig in!

The bread is easy and DELISH. So ultra fluffy on the inside and extra crunchy on the outside. I really like the recipe and the taste of the bread is wonderful. Will be making this again for sure!

Enjoy!

  1. So at first try, this bread seems to have turned out amazing for you!! If you are in the mood to try out something less time consuming, you can try this fool proof sandwich bread recipe I found at curvy carrot (https://whilehewasout.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/simple-and-amazing-white-sandwich-bread/), I have made it like 10 times already and always turned out great :)) I’m certain it would work with different types of flour too, if you feel bold 🙂
