Having a dinner party or a daily meal? The bread as a food item is present almost at all times with different combinations of food items!
It goes well with your daily butter and cheese, with your curry and gravy and the list could go on.
Homemade bread is substantially tastier than store-purchased bread, since it isn’t laden with preservatives, is inexpensive to make, and doesn’t take all that much time, either!
There’s no smell as tantalizing as that of freshly soft baked bread. And we’ve yet to come across anything as comforting as a still warm slice of homemade bread.
It’s hard to beat the aroma of a loaf of freshly baked bread. The aromas that fill your house, the steam rising off the right-out-of-the-oven loaf is beyond comparison.

Now you can make your own homemade bread in quick easy steps!
Here’s what you need and how to go about making bread:
Ingredients – Basic ingredients: 225g (1 ½ Cups) Strong plain white flour, 1 tsp salt, 15 g (1 tbsp) soft tub margarine or 1 tbsp oil, 1 sachet (6g) easy blend dried yeast, 150 ml (2/3 cup) warm water – NOT HOT!
Procedure – Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, then add the oil and water, and mix well. If the dough seems a little stiff, add 1 – 2 tbsp water, mix well then tip onto a lightly floured work surface and knead. Once the dough is satin-smooth, place it in a lightly oiled bowl. Leave to rise for 1 hour until doubled in size or place in the fridge overnight.
Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Knock back the dough, then gently mould the dough into a ball. Place it on the baking parchment for a further hour until doubled in size.
Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Dust the loaf with flour and cut a cross about 6cm long into the top of the loaf with a sharp knife. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped underneath. Cool on a wire rack.
