Bread is a versatile food and a good source of carbohydrates that can be eaten in many different ways. It can be sliced and served with butter or cheese, or used as a base for sandwiches and pizzas. Bread can also be toasted and used as a dipping bread for soups and stews. There are endless possibilities when it comes to recipes that include bread as an ingredient.

Bread making is a skilled process and takes time and practice to perfect. There are many different types of bread, from sourdough to baguettes, so there is a lot of scope for creativity.

How to make a bread recipe



  1. Bread flour – this is a type of flour that contains a higher proportion of gluten, which gives the bread its structure.


  1. Water – To make the dough, you’ll need to add water to the flour. The amount of water you’ll need will vary depending on the type of flour you’re using.


  1. Yeast – this is what makes the bread rise. You can use either fresh or dried yeast. If you’re using dried yeast, make sure it’s active by dissolving it in a little warm water before adding it to the dough.


  1. Salt – this helps to flavour the bread and also controls the activity of the yeast.


  1. Butter or oil – this is optional, but some people like to add a little fat to their bread dough to make it more tender.


Step 1:

Start by mixing the flour, water and yeast together in a large bowl. If you’re using dried yeast, make sure it’s dissolved in a little warm water before adding it to the rest of the ingredients.

Step 2:

Once the ingredients are combined, add the salt and butter or oil (if using). Knead the dough for 10 minutes to form a smooth, elastic ball.

Step 3:

Place the dough in a clean bowl, apply oil in it and cover with a wet cloth. Let the dough rise.

Step 4:

Once the dough has risen, shape it into a loaf and place it on a lightly floured surface.

Step 5:

Place it in the good bread maker and bake the bread for 40-50 minutes. The bread is ready. Let it cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
