What’s for Dinner: Homemade Bread

You need:

  • 1 cup of [warm] water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar20140625-173527-63327979.jpg
  • 1 package of instant yeast
  • 3 cups of [all-purpose] flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Olive oil

What I did was:

  1. In your mixing bowl, combine the warm water, the sugar, and the yeast. Stir the ingredients together. Then let it sit for around 10 minutes [until the yeast starts to foam].
  2. Next, add in the flour and salt. Mix the ingredients together until everything is incorporated and a nice dough forms. In my stand mixer, I switch to the dough hook when adding the flour and salt.
  3. I, then, sprayed the bowl that I would let the dough rise in with non-stick cooking spray just to make things simple for me. Transfer your dough into this bowl. Cover with a damp paper towel and let it rise in a warm area. I typically let any type of dough I am working with rise in a turned off oven. No kneading involved!
  4. Let your rise for around an hour. Or at least 30 minutes.
  5. When you are ready to bake the bread [the dough has risen], preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Line a baking tray with foil [for easy cleanup]. Drizzle olive oil on top of the foil.
  7. Transfer your dough to your lined baking sheet. Score the top of the dough, and drizzle with more olive oil.
  8. Bake in your preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes.

I served it alongside an olive oil and herb dip today, but it would be great for sandwiches or anything else too.
