Yes, you can bake bread in 1 hour!
I’ll show you how you bake a healthy, fresh, yummy loaf of bread in an hour!
There is no need to run to the store if you are out of bread. Just have these few ingredients on hand.
Bake Yummy Bread in Just One Hour
I was given the recipe of all recipes to make super fast, easy bread, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
- costs so much less
- is fun and easy to prepare (get the kids involved!)
- is so much healthier
Store-bought bread is often loaded with high-fructose syrup and fortified with folic acid (not good, you want folate).
When you make bread at home, you are in control of the ingredients, which is so satisfying! I always opt for organic ingredients, but that is up to you. Since organic bread is pricey in the store, making this bread myself saves me a ton of money.
And you can forget about expensive bread machines. All you need is: flour, rapid rise yeast, water, salt, and olive oil.
Voila — bread!
When my son was three years old, we went to a “make minestrone and bread” playdate, and Brad taught us how to make this delicious bread.
Here you can see my little son help me make it the first time at home.
This is a really fun activity you can do with kids — just be prepared for a lot of flour on your floor, ha!
Let your child help, measure, taste, mix, knead and shape the bread.
As you can see, my son wanted to shape the dough into these little balls — and why not?
Fast & Easy 1-hour Bread Ingredients:
- 3 cups of flour (you can use whole wheat, but it’s best to only substitute 1 cup with whole wheat. I use organic flour, but that’s up to you, and it doesn’t have to be bread flour.)
- 2 tsp Rapid Rise yeast
- 1 tsp salt (this fine sea salt is THE best! It has over 50 minerals, made in the US.)
- 1 cup warm water (I used a bit more)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
Directions to Make Bread in an Hour
- Combine half of the flour and dry ingredients. Then mix in water and oil
- Mix in the remaining flour
- Knead 10-15 minutes (I only did about 5)
- Shape as desired (round or long, 1 or 2 loaf) and let rest while preheating oven to 425 degrees
- Spray with water for crunchy crust and put into the oven
- Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then the rest of the time (about 10 minutes) at 350 degrees
Ta-da! Homemade bread in an hour.
Warning: do not try Nutella on this homemade bread. It’s so good, you’ll eat the whole loaf.
Let me know what you think. Impress your family and bake this for a special occasion!
The bread is pretty dense, but I can’t get over how easy and cheap it is to make your own bread.
I can’t wait to mess with the recipe a bit and add walnuts and raisins next.

And this Mastering Bread book is just so pretty an on my wish list:
Happy baking! And pin this for later!
