Benefits of Main Ingredients

 The main ingredients in bread—flour, water, yeast, and salt—offer more than just the foundation for a tasty loaf. Whole wheat flour provides a good amount of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including magnesium and manganese. It may aid digestion, support heart health, and help regulate blood sugar levels. Yeast, a leavening agent, is a source of B vitamins and can contribute to a healthy immune system. Salt, while added in small amounts, enhances the flavor of the bread and plays a role in regulating hydration and yeast activity.


 To create this homemade bread, gather the following ingredients:

• 4 cups all-purpose flour

• 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

• 2 teaspoons salt

• 2 cups warm water


• In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, yeast, and salt.

• Gradually add the warm water to the dry ingredients, mixing with a wooden spoon until a shaggy dough forms.

• Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.

• Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free area for about 1-2 hours, or until it doubles in size.

• Once the dough has risen, gently punch it down to release any air bubbles. Transfer it to a lightly floured surface and shape it into a loaf.

• Place the shaped dough into a greased loaf pan, cover it with the kitchen towel, and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes.

• Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) while the dough is rising.

• Once the dough has risen again, slash the top with a sharp knife and place the loaf pan in the preheated oven.

• Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

• Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.


• Experiment with different types of flour, such as whole wheat or bread flour, to customize the flavor and texture of your bread.

• For a crustier loaf, you can place a shallow pan of water in the bottom of the oven while baking.

• Enjoy the freshly baked bread on its own, with butter, or as a complement to soups, stews, and sandwiches.

• Store the cooled bread in a plastic bag or airtight container to maintain its freshness.
