This is a super easy and relatively quick recipe for homemade bread. Its good too.:)

3 3/4 cups all purpose or bread flour

1  .25 ounce package of yeast

2 Tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoons sugar

1 1/2 cup warm water

First dissolve yeast in the warm water . In separate bowl mix together 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, oil and sugar. Add the dissolved yeast water to the flour mixture. Mix together and let stand, covered tightly, for 30 mins.

Now add 1 1/2 cups flour gradually to yeast mixture, mix together by hand to form dough. Place dough on floured surface and continue to knead and fold in flour until dough is smooth and not sticking to hands.

Separate dough into 2 loaves approx. 1 lb. a piece, or you may make 6 mini loaves, they are really convenient for one or two people.  Place loaves one non stick cookie sheet and place in COLD oven for 15 min. and let rise.( Dough will continue to rise while being cooked.)

Turn oven to 425 degrees and bake for approximately 30 min  or until good and golden . 🙂

Enjoy!
