Homemade bread is not easy to make, as the process contains many nuances. Perfect bread takes a little practice, patience and a lot of free time. If your day is busy, it’s best to wait for a more convenient time to bake bread. The process of producing the perfect dough requires not only time but also observation, you should not leave it unattended for too long, otherwise the bread will get an unpleasant sour taste.

At the same time, the process can’t be rushed neither, as it’s crucial waiting enough for a dough getting in a perfect state. I have had several failed bread-making attempts that taught me these lessons. Often my bread came out too hard or not fluffy enough. But after numerous trials, I’m ready to share a recipe for perfect bread that you can make on your first try if you follow the instructions precisely.


  • 1 cup warm milk

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 2 cups floor

  • 3 tbsp sugar

  • 1 1/2 tsp yeast


  • Mix milk with sugar and microwave for 30 seconds. Milk should be warm, but not hot.
  • Add yeast to warm milk and stir with a spoon. Set them aside for 5-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the flour to a large bowl and mix well with a whisk to remove any lumps and fluff up the flour.
  • After 5-10 minutes, foam will appear on the yeast, which means it is ready to be use.
  • Combine flour, melted butter and milk with yeast mixture
  • You will end up with a slightly sticky dough, as it should be, don’t try to add more flour or the bread may turn out too solid. Continue kneading the dough until it stops sticking to your hands. You can grease your hands with sunflower oil, to make it more convenient for you to knead. Shape the dough into a ball, cover with cling film and leave in a warm place for an hour.
  • After an hour, the dough should double in size.
  • Put it on the bottom of the form pre-greased with sunflower oil, cover with cling film on top and leave in a warm place for another hour for dough to rise more.
  • Carefully remove the cling film, the dough should double in size and occupy the entire space of the mold, place the mold in a preheated oven to 200 degrees C (390 F) for 50 minutes. If you see that the top of the bread is getting darker too fast, cover it with foil.
  • Take the bread out of the oven, remove it from the mold and let it cool to room temperature. Bon appetit
