Homemade Bread Recipe!

This bread is so easy to make, and delicious!  It’s soft, but won’t collapse onto itself once you cut a slice, like some breads do.  

Oh, did I mention it’s VEGAN!  Yep, you read that right.  This bread recipe is vegan,  but don’t worry, you can use butter (garlic butter! mmm..) in place of oil for a richer taste. 

(psst, you can also use this recipe to make buns or pizza crust.. it’s versatile!)

Write a review
  1. 4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  2. 2 Cups Hot Water
  3. 2 tsp Sugar
  4. 2 Tsp Salt
  5. 2 tsp yeast.
  1. Combine flour, sugar & salt.
  2. Mix together with your hands.
  3. Create a little well in the flour, add yeast to the well and hot water over top.
  4. Let stand for 10 minutes (don't mix yet!).
  5. Mix on medium for a minute or so.
  6. Grab a hand full of flour and throw it on top of the dough just to make kneading easier.
  7. Knead a few times with your hands to form a ball.
  8. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm spot.
  9. Rise for 40 minutes.
  10. Again, throw a small handful of flour on top to prevent bread from sticking to you, knead and form into loaves. (makes two small loaves)
  11. Grease your loaf pans.
  12. Put loaves in the pans, and let rise again in a warm place for 30 min covered with a hot damp linen cloth or paper towel.
  13. Cut diagonal slices on the top of the loaf about a half cm deep. Brush with a table spoon of butter, lard or olive oil.
  14. I sometimes sprinkle sea salt on the top.
  15. Bake at 375 for 27-30 min (adjust time if you make 1 large loaf, muffin-tin sized buns)
