Mom's Delicious Homemade Bread

"This is my Mom's recipe. It is so good, very light and fluffy with a crispy crust on the bottom. Very simple too. Can be used to make rolls, or loaves. You can easily double it. You can also add 1c. raisins and/or slivered almonds,orange/lemon zest and vanilla extract to a loaf for a festive holiday bread. The options are endless!"

Ready In:
2hrs 25mins
2 loaves




  • Combine warm water, yeast, oil and honey in a large bowl, let sit for 5 minutes then add the salt and egg. Stir all together.
  • Add the flour one cup at a time, stirring together after each cup. Around the 5th cup your dough will begin to come together pulling away from the sides of the bowl and forming a ball.
  • Empty the dough onto a clean, floured surface and begin kneading the dough adding a little more flour as it becomes sticky. It should be slightly sticky. Knead for 3-5 minutes until smooth, firm and elastic.
  • Set aside to rise until double.
  • Divide dough into 2 loaves or 1 loaf and 12 rolls or all rolls if you like. Place in well greased loaf pan or rolls on a greased cookie sheet.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Set aside to rise until almost double once more.
  • Bake loaves for 25-30 minutes, or rolls for 15 minutes. They should be golden brown on top and bottom when done.

    I used 4 cups white (bread) flour, 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup oat bran. And covered the dough with a warm towel while rising (both times).

    I love this bread. I make it all the time and my sister-in-law loves it so much she's started making it too. It's so easy to follow, even for a newbie to bread making. I'd strongly suggest giving this one a try if you're at all nervous about trying to make bread. It's such an awesome bread to help you get confident and be willing to try more complicated types.
