Homemade bread in the oven

What could be tastier than fresh homemade bread, and even if you baked it yourself? It turns out that baking homemade bread in the oven is not difficult at all! Below is a recipe for quick white bread, where you will spend only five or ten minutes of your time, the rest of the time the bread will spend without you. The result is a fragrant loaf of bread with a crispy crust and a dense crumb.

Cooking time: 225 minutes.

Servings: 4.

Calories: 190.


Products minimum:

  • premium flour - 500 g;
  • water - 375 ml;
  • salt - 1.5 tsp;
  • dry yeast - 1.5 tsp. (or fresh -15 g);
  • vegetable oil on parchment.


1. Also prepare salt and yeast. Yeast can be taken both dry and live.

2. Take warm water, not hot. Pour salt into a container with water, and then yeast, mix so that everything dissolves. This must be done quickly so that the salt does not have time to react with the yeast.

3. Pour the liquid with yeast and salt into the bowl with flour. Use a spoon to mix everything together until smooth.

4. It is not necessary to knead the dough for a long time, it is enough just to combine everything into a homogeneous mass.

5. Cover the bowl tightly with cling film, put the container to a warm place without drafts. Forget about the dough for two hours. Calculate how much time you spent on kneading bread? I guess, 3-5 minutes, not more.

6. In two hours, the dough has increased two and a half times, this is quite enough.

7. Let's start molding the bread. The working surface must be dusted with flour and lay out the entire mass. Just use your hands to stretch the dough into a rectangle shape. There is absolutely no need to use a rolling pin.

8. We need to fold an envelope from the dough. To do this, take the edge of the dough with your right hand and pull it slightly to the side, the dough is supple and stretches well. Wrap the elongated edge on the total mass.

11. We also wrap the top edge. As a result, we got an envelope from the test. If you plan to bake bread in a square shape, then this molding will be enough, only the sides of the dough will need to be folded under the bottom to make the loaf even.

12. We will bake bread in a round shape, so the dough must be shaped into a ball. During the molding process, be sure to dust the surface of the table with flour. Flour should also be sprinkled on your hands and the dough itself so that it does not stick. The surface of the bun must be crushed with flour. It also took us five minutes to form the loaf.

13. We shift the future bread onto parchment paper, on which we will bake it. Pre-lubricate the paper with vegetable oil. We cover the dough with a bowl, leave it on the table to rest for half an hour. At this time, turn on the oven to warm up along with the baking dish. We set t-230 ° С.

14. After thirty minutes, pour three hundred milliliters of hot water into any metal mold or bowl and put it in the oven on the lower level. Bread will be baked with steam.

15. We take out a preheated form from the oven, preferably cast iron. Together with parchment paper, we shift the dough into a hot form. With a sharp knife or a special blade, we make arbitrary cuts on the bread.
