Make your own white bread


By Julie Published: October 17, 2012

  • Makes: 2 loaves (12 Servings)
  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 30-35 mins
  • Ready In: 2 hrs 50 mins

This is much easier than I expected. Made it with one of my children and he loved it. There is something so nice about the smell of freshly baked bread and with some nice soup it is a healthy and delicious meal. Give it a go, easier than you would think and much tastier than shop bought.



  1. Grease 2 x 900g loaf tins for your loaves. Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Now add the yeast and mix in. Then rub in the butter gently. Make a well in the centre and add the warm water, mix it in to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic in texture. Shape it into a round, place in an oiled bowl, cover with a teatowel or cling film and leave somewhere warm to rise for about an hour. It should double in size.
  3. Once the dough has risen take it out and give it another little knead and get some of the air out. Then split in 2 and split between the 2 tins, cover again and leave to rise for about another 30 minutes (again it should double in size)
  4. Now preheat your oven to a hot 230c. Bake the loaves at this hot heat for about 15 mins, then reduce the heat to 200c and bake for a further 10-15 mins. The bread should sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Let it cool on a wire rack and it will keep more air in it too. Enjoy anyhow!!
