Home Made bread

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).
baking cups

Below is the video.
