homemade bread recipe

Making bread at home is wonderful, especially if you have the time to do it properly. That is why I am going to teach you today how to make a very simple loaf of bread so that you can spend an afternoon cooking as a family at home. I guarantee that the outcome will be more than satisfactory.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 500 grams of bread flour
  • 10 grams of salt
  • 300 ml of warm water
  • 5 grams of fresh or baker's yeast

Instructions

    1. First and foremost, we must accurately weigh the ingredients and arrange them on the table so that we can easily combine them.
    2. We combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. We begin with flour and salt. We are gradually adding water to ensure that it is integrated. A few minutes before the kneading is finished, the fresh yeast will be added.
    3. When the dough peels away from the walls, it is ready. If you do it by hand at the table, keep a little flour aside to add little by little so it doesn't stick to the table.
    4. We roll it into a ball and place it in a warm place for 30 minutes with a damp cloth on top.
    5. After resting, cut the dough into 120-gram portions with a knife. Allow the portions to rest on the table for another 15 minutes with a damp cloth on top.
      Because the bread sticks are about 20-25 cm long, they are ideal for making sandwiches. To make the shape, follow these steps: We'll begin by squashing each ball on the table and forming the rectangle shown in the photo
    6. The two ends are folded towards the center.
    7. Then cut in half.
    8. We crush it thoroughly and shape it into a bar.
    9. We use a cotton cloth or a linen cloth; I've read that a cotton cloth lifts perfectly, and a normal cloth lifts me wonderfully.
    10. We place the bars on top of a little flour. Make some folds so they don't stick together when climbing. We rested them for more than 90 minutes with a damp cloth.
    11. Because steam helps to cook the bread, we will place a saucepan with one wet cloth and a little water in the bottom of the oven before placing the loaves of bread, which will aid in the formation of water vapor in the oven. When opening the oven to place the bars, do so as quickly as possible to prevent the water vapor from escaping.
    12. After 90 minutes, we place our bars on the baking tray, make some cuts on the surface along the bar with a sharp knife, and sprinkle with flour to decorate.
    13. I read that they use a very sharp blade, and I thought that good with a knife would be the same... well, now I agree with them because cutting with a knife should be much cleaner, even if the cut was good for my first bread.
    14. Now that the bread is ready to go into the oven (it should have almost doubled in volume), we bake it at 200o for 15 minutes, switching the heat up and down.
    15. To give you an idea, I used the oven fan and they were perfect in about 17 minutes, so I believe the time is an estimate because I left them a little longer, and I believe it will vary by oven.
    16. We remove them from the oven and place them on a cooling rack to cool.
