Homemade Bread Recipe


5½ – 6 Cups all purpose unbleached white flour

7 Grams (1 pack) instant yeast (if using active dry, activate in warm water)

1 ½  Tbs kosher salt (or any salt)

½ Cup warm milk

2 Cups warm water

3 Tbs honey (can substitute with sugar)

2 Tbs melted shortening (can substitute with butter, or vegetable oil)


Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until smooth dough forms

Transfer onto lightly floured clean working surface and knead about 5-7 minutes

Don’t add too much flour!

Place the dough into lightly greased large bowl and cover with plastic wrap or damp towel

Let it rest in a warm place until doubled in size (50-60 minutes,depending on temperature )

Turn it onto working surface and knead gently using stretch and fold technique

Shape into a ball and place it back into the bowl for second rise (45-60 minutes)
