Homemade Bread

Homemade bread is an easy-to-make treat. It goes perfect with soup, butter, or any sandwich bread slices.



Mixing bowl(optional:electric)

4 bread pans

Pam spray

An oven



Warm water:5 ½ cups

Yeast:3 Tbsp.

Vegetable oil:½ cup)

Honey:½ cup

Salt:1 ½ Tbsp.

Whole wheat flour:9 cups

White flour:4 cups


First, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the warm water in the mixing bowl. Then, sprinkle the yeast all around the bowl. Pour the oil in one spot, and spread the honey all over the yeast. Put the salt on one tiny spot in the bowl. Do not proceed until the yeast starts to float. When the yeast floats pour the whole wheat flour in evenly on all sides. Mix until no clumps of flour remain (if using an electric mixing bowl, turn the speed on to level one).The white flour is added merely to get the mix to the right consistency. Only add white flour to the mix until the dough is soft and doesn’t stick to the side of the bowl. Knead the dough for 10 minutes (if using mixing bowl, turn the machine on to one and wait ten minutes). Pinch the dough to separate it into four virtually identical pieces. Tuck under two perpendicular sides of the dough until it is a round oval shape. Spray the pans with a very light layer of Pam spray and place the dough pieces in the four bread pans. Cover the dough with a dry dish rag or cloth, and let the dough rise until it has grown to double its size. Don’t depend on time to tell you when the dough is done rising. When the dough is done rising, put the dough pan in the oven gently. Wait 30 minutes, then check your bread. When it is satisfactory, pull the pans out and enjoy!
