Home Made bread

Bread - home made

Bread can be made in more than one way. I have seen over 10 different bread recipes but most of them use the same basic ingredients. I did promise that we would be trying a couple of them in the next 30 days, so we would be starting with this simple bread.
Bread - home made

What I have listed below are the basic ingredients for bread. The video below will show you more.

Half cup of sugar
3 cups of flour
2 spoons of yeast
2 spoons of veg oil
Half cup of milk
Half Teaspoon of salt
One cup of water
one egg (optional)
One Spoon of Butter

To answer one of the most recurrent questions of all time, I will start by elaborating more on measurements. Below are my measuring set. I purchased them for just about a dollar (400 Naira). You will find them where you buy flour (cake stuff shop).

    Hi I have watched your video how to make home bread but I don’t understand what means half cup of sugar?? How much is that cup??? Can you use a normal milk?? Not powder am waiting for next video

    1. dear you can use stove and pot .
      1: if your dough is almost risen, light your stove and put a stainless or stones (smaller sizes) on inside the pot. DON’T let your bread pan touch the pot. then place the pot on the stove like 3-5, min before you out the risen dough into the pot.
      2: cover your pot with well fitted pot cover and bake.
      3: don’t over high your stove so that the under of bread your will not get burnt.
      4: don’t open it for the next 20 min. depending on the size.

  4. Pls can I use coconut flour and coconut oil instead of normal flour and vegetable oil. Can I also use stevia in place of sugar

    1. I think you should go ahead and try something different, great recipes are created by people who try new things. Coconut flour? haven’t heard of that yet. lol.
