Easy Bread Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2½ teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup warm water
Methods:
  • Add everything in a large bowl except water and butter. Roughly mix. 
  • Add water and butter, start mixing. 
  • Keep mixing till the dough forming smoothly. 
  • Flour a clean surface for kneading the dough, transfer the dough to the surface. 
  • Start kneading about 10 minutes. Shape the dough into a big round bun. (Search YouTube for bread kneading techniques if you need to.) 
  • Flour or grease a bowl, put the dough in, cover with cloth or plastic wrap. Leave it in a warm place, let it rise for 45 minutes. The dough will almost double its size. 
  • While the dough is rising, grease a baking pan. 
  • Take out the dough and back to the floured kneading surface. Punch the dough down and squeeze out all the air. Knead for another 1 or 2 minutes. Make into a bun shape. 
  • Put the dough in the greased baking pan, cover with cloth and let it rise for 15 minutes. 
  • While the dough is rising, preheat oven to 180°C. 
  • After the dough is done, use a knife, cut an “X” mark on top. 
  • Bake in oven around 40 minutes. 
  • When it's done, the bread is golden brown. 
  • Take the bread out of the oven. Let cool before cutting.
